“In his submission on manual backup to the Senate earlier (yesterday), SK Macharia made preposterous allegations to the effect that Raila Odinga won the 2007 duel. Macharia further claimed he has evidence which he, apparently in his wisdom or lack thereof, didn’t present before the Johann Kriegler Commission,” Marete said.
Macharia, while making his presentation on election law changes to the Senate’s Legal Affairs committee claimed that Kibaki rigged out Raila Odinga in the polls that plunged the country into violence, insisting that he was in possession of evidence to back up his allegations.
