Azimio flag bearer Raila Odinga and his legal team has arrived at the Milimani Law Courts to file a petition challenging DP William Ruto’s win.

The team arrived with 39 boxes as exhibits moments before 2pm in line with the Supreme Court rules which dictate that if a petition is submitted on the last day of filing, then it should be done before 2 pm on the said day.

Azimio lawyer Daniel Maanzo however said that the team had earlier already filed an electronic copy of the presidential petition.

We have already filed the case online as required, our officers doing the paperwork will be at Milimani law courts anytime
