Chebukati Gives Raila 7-Day Ulimatum to Produce Video Evidence

Former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chair Wafula Chebukati has threatened to take Azimio leader Raila Odinga to court over his claims of visiting his house.

In a demand letter dated Tuesday, January 31, Chebukati gave Raila seven days to produce the CCTV footage to prove claims that he visited his house before announcing the 2022 presidential election results.

During the Jacaranda rally on Sunday, January 29, Odinga claimed that Chebukati and ex-commissioners Boya Molu, and Abdi Guliye visited his house.

Speaking to, an advocate from Saroni and Stevens Advocates confirmed that the letter had been sent to Raila. 

In the letter, the lawyer noted that their client was aggrieved that the ODM leader did not take any caution while making the remarks injuring Chebukati’s reputation.

“Further, our Client is aggrieved that you took no caution or responsibility while making the adverse remarks with the consequence that our Client has suffered and continues to suffer serious reputational injury, taking into account his status and position as former Chairman of IEBC,” the statement read in part. 

In the document signed by lawyer Steve Ogola, the former IEBC boss threatened legal action if the video is not made available within the time frame.

“Our instructions are to demand from you, as of right, which we hereby do, to be furnished with the alleged video footage within seven days from the date hereof.

“Kindly take notice that if we do not receive the video footage demanded hereinabove, within the Demand Period, we shall be constrained to institute appropriate adverse but lawful proceedings against you.
