"It was a LONG CON. We live to fight another day."

Embakasi East MP Paul Ongili, alias Babu Owino now claims the Azimio La Umoja Flagbearer Raila Odinga could have been shortchanged all along, ostensibly, since his handshake deal with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

In a cryptic message just hours before the Supreme Court issues its verdict on the Presidential petition, the MP-elect said the ODM leader was duped.

"Baba you will forever be my Hero. They played you all along. It was a long con. We live to fight another day," he said.

Th message has sparked speculations among Kenyans with some concluding that the Azimio leader could have been dealt a blow in the looming ruling.

The Supreme Court is expected to issue its ruling Monday, September 5 at 12 noon.

The hearing on the seven consolidated petitions concluded on Friday.

The seven-judge bench is expected to make their own judgements and read them out at the Supreme Court.

The seven include; Chief Justice Martha Koome, Philomena Mwilu (vice president) Njoki Ndung'u, Issac Lenaola, Smokin Wanjala, Mohammed Ibrahim and William Ouko.

Judges used the entire weekend to write their judgment on the nine issues canvased before court the past three days in the petition that seeks to overturn the election of Deputy President William Ruto as President-elect.
