NASA supporters send urgent request to Raila

Raila is set to make his final decision about polls today

The council of elders in his Mombasa stronghold now demands that Raila Odinga concede defeat in the just concluded elections in which Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the winner.

The request comes even as the opposition leader is set for a major announcement later today over his political career future.

The group has urged Mr Odinga to stop luring his supporters to violence. Over 17 people, according to humanitarian groups, have lost their lives since the anti-polls results protests in Nairobi's Kibera and Mathare slums, and Kisumu County.

As it stands, however, Mr Odinga has only three options going forward now that his call to boycott job on Monday hit a snag as hundreds trooped back to work as businesses in Mombasa, Kisumu and Nairobi returned to normalcy.

Mr Odinga has persistently been urged to go to court and challenge President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-lection last week, a stand his team vowed that will not take into consideration.

Earlier, Mr Odinga had told his supporters that he will not be seeking redress from the Supreme Court, having lost a similar case in the 2013 polls.

Last Friday, President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the winner of the highly contested elections after he got over 8.2 million votes against Mr Odinga’s 6.8 million votes.

Mr Odinga, however, believes that the polls team IEBC rigged him through a compromised ICT system, which he claimed was hacked by unknown people. IEBC has since dismissed the claims.

On Tuesday, in a congratulatory message to President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta, US Embassy in Nairobi urged Mr Odinga to concede or seek redress from the Supreme Court.
