The Azimio chief agent for the presidential vote, Saitabao Kanchory, has subtly signalled that things are not looking good for his boss, Raila Odinga.

Posting on his social media pages, the lawyer said it has been a difficult task protecting Raila’s votes.

He noted that Deputy President William Ruto’s men are hellbent on forcing the outcome of the presidential election in favour of the outgoing second in command.

“Tough day in the office… Protecting @RailaOdinga votes requires extraordinary measures,” he said.

Nevertheless, Kanchory remained bullish that the former Prime Minister will defeat Dr Ruto.

“As the 5th National Chief Agent for this Icon & eternal believer in the potential & promise of our Country & its great people, I want to announce to the Nation that Baba is THE 5TH,” the lawyer stated.

At the national tallying centre in Bomas of Kenya, altercations pitting agents of Raila against those of Ruto have been witnessed from time to time.

Last evening, the Azimio team demanded that verification of Forms 34B be halted until their concerns are addressed.

The Raila team claimed that several Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) officials were colluding with Ruto’s men to manipulate the results.
