Azimio La Umoja says it has assembled the best lawyers in the Country for their Presidential election petition at the Supreme Court.

In a statement, Raila Odinga Presidential campaign secretariat spokesperson Prof Makau Mutua said the team will be led by Senior Counsel James Orengo alongside Senior Counsel Pheroze Nowrojee, Senior Counsel Phillip Mugor and Senior Counsel Okongo Omogeni.

“We are pleased that our Presidential election petition has buoyed the spirits of Kenyans that justice will prevail and that they didn’t cast their votes for Azimio in vain,” He said.

The case management team is led by Paul Mwangi and comprises Jackson Awele, Julie Soweto, Velma Maumo, Prof Ben Sihanya, Fred Orengo, Dan Maanzo and Tom Macharia.

Others lawyers include Tony Muturi, Dr Judy Oloo, Celestine Opiyo, Arnold Oginga, Justus Njura, Ndegwa Njiru, Tabitha Wathuti, Winnie Makaba, George Ouma among others.

In the petition filed on Monday, Raila Odinga and Martha Karua accuses IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati of interfeering with the Presidential election results and acting in contravention of the constitution by declaring DP William Ruto as President Elect.

Raila wants the Supreme Court to declare the announcement invalid and instead declare him President elect.

The Supreme Court has 14 days since the petition was filed alongside 8 others to hear and determine the case.
