Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya leader Raila Odinga has threatened to organise one million protesters to storm the Judiciary to demand justice.

Raila, who jetted back quietly into the country on Thursday 15 from Zanzibar, spoke when he attended a luncheon of Governor Abdulswamad Nassir at Sarova Whitesands in Mombasa.

The Azimio leader said he is waiting for the full judgement of the Supreme Court before announcing the next course of action.

"We want to wait and see what these details are going to be about," Raila said.

Raila, who is also Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader, insisted that the presidential election of August 9 was interfered with by foreigners.

"Why should women, the elderly (and) the disabled queue for so many hours to cast their votes when at the end of the day it is a mercenary from Venezuela called Mr. Jose Camargo who eventually decides who becomes the president of this country?" Raila posed.

He further questioned the manner in which the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) conducted the August 9 election.

"How is it possible that a device transmits results from Mt Elgon and eight minutes later it transmits results from Nyeri? Is that not dramatic? Shame on you Supreme Court," he stated.

Raila was appearing for the first time in public since the confirmation of William Ruto's win by the Supreme Court.

Ruto had invited him to attend his inauguration but he declined.

"I received a letter and a telephone call from Ruto inviting me to his inauguration set for tomorrow, September 13, 2022.

"I regret however that I will not be available for the inauguration because I am out of the country and I also have other serious concerns.

"First, I believe that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, the body in charge of our elections, did not conduct a free and fair election," he said.
