Former electoral commission chairman Wafula Chebukati wants Azimio coalition leader Raila Odinga to provide video footage of an alleged visit he made to the opposition leader’s home during the electoral period.
Chebukati, through his lawyer Steve Ogolla wrote to Odinga saying he should provide the video within seven days, failure to which he will take legal action against him.
He said the allegations made by Odinga during a political rally at the Jacaranda grounds on Sunday have lowered his dignity and injured his reputation.
He denied the claims by Odinga that he visited his home in Karen during the 2022 August election period.
“Our client is aggrieved that you took no caution or responsibility while making the adverse remarks with the consequence that our client has suffered and continues to suffer serious reputational injury, taking into account his status and position as former chairman of IEBC,” the letter read.
President William Ruto also raised concerns about the allegations on Monday, questioning the genuineness of the claims.
“It then begs the question … if it’s true, what were these officials doing in your house at your invitation? Being a candidate, how did you end up inviting officials of an independent body?” he wondered.
