Kisumu, Kenya: Prime Minister Raila Odinga has criticised the decision by the Supreme Court to uphold the election of Uhuru Kenya as Kenya’s fourth president. Raila said the decision by the county’s highest court was unpopular, as he dismissed it. “Supreme Court ishindwe (May the Supreme Court be defeated,” he said.

“The decision is like the persecution of Jesus Christ that occurred over 2000 years ago. Like Jesus, I am still alive,” said the premier, when he addressed crowds in Kondele area, Kisumu on Friday. He said the Supreme Court, under its President Willy Mutunga, made its decision during Easter, on the same period Jesus was persecuted, died and rose.
Raila said he would continue with the fight for democracy, despite losing the presidency. He urged Kenyans to continue to fight for justice and democracy, adding that he would spearhead this fight.
“When the cooking stick breaks, it does not mean the process of preparing meals should stop,” he said Carrying a black Bible and dressed in a checked blue shirt, the premier said Kenyans had been let down by last week decision. “Kenyan waited anxiously for the ruling. However, they were betrayed with the court’s ruling that was intended to kill his political career,” said Raila, amid chants from the crowd.
