Raila reacts to supreme Court decision (full statement)

Opposition chief Raila Odinga who is expected to return to the country on Thursday

The National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga’s adviser Salim Lone says the political formation’s perception of the Jubilee government as “illegitimate” has not changed even after the Supreme Court ruled Monday to uphold President Uhuru Kenyatta’s win in the October 26 presidential poll.

In a statement to newsrooms, which he said was crafted on behalf of Mr Odinga, Mr Lone said: “We in NASA had repeatedly declared before this Supreme Court ruling today (November 20) that we consider this government to be illegitimate and do not recognize it. This position has not been changed by the Court ruling.”

STATEMENT BY MR RAILA ODINGA

We in NASA had repeatedly declared before this Supreme Court ruling today that we consider this government to be illegitimate and do not recognize it. This position has not been changed by the Court ruling, which did not come as a surprise. It was a decision taken under duress. We do not condemn the Court, we sympathize with it.
