Chebukati and Raila battle

Former Chairman of the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Wafula Chebukati has sent a written complaint to the head of the opposition coalition, Raila Odinga, requesting that he share the video evidence of a supposed visit he made to the opposition leader's residence during the election season.

Chebukati, via his lawyer Steve Ogolla, has given a deadline to Odinga, demanding that the video footage be made public within one week, or else Chebukati would take legal recourse against Odinga.

In the letter, there is a passage that says, "In the context of your charges and our client's strong opposition to them, we have been told to demand, as is our right, that you give us the alleged video evidence within seven days of the date of this letter."

The letter also suggests that Mr. Odinga's charges, which he referred to during a social event held at Jacaranda Grounds in Nairobi on Sunday, have diminished his integrity and harmed his image.

"Our client is upset that you did not exercise any caution or responsibility when making the derogatory remarks, which resulted in our client suffering and continuing to endure a serious concussion to his reputation." This is especially troubling when considering our client's status and position as a former chairman of the IEBC.

Speaking on Sunday, Raila said that Chebuakti and former Commissioners Abdi Guliye and Boya Molu visited his home. He questioned why they claimed some people tried to bribe them but did not explain why they came to his house. Raila said that Chebukati and the two former commissioners visited his home.

But Chebukati has said that these claims are false because the visit that was said to have happened never happened.

The demand letter continues with the statement, "In response to your allegations, our client categorically denies that he met you during the election year, let alone the election period, and in particular, at your home, as you have alleged," which shows Chebukati did not meet with Raila during the election year or during the election period.
