Makau Mutua said Azimio had not yet conceded defeat to President William Ruto.

Azimio La Umoja spokesperson Makau Mutua has hinted at the Raila Odinga-led coalition's next move after flunking the August 9 presidential election.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday, November 5, Mutua clued that the coalition would be pursuing other avenues after the Supreme Court threw out the petition challenging President William Ruto's win.

He said that Azimio was yet to concede defeat to President William Ruto who won the August 9 vote.

His tweet left Kenyans guessing the coalition's next move.

This came after claims by another Raila confidante who claimed agents from the UK aided in election rigging.

The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) executive director Oduor Ongwen sensationally claimed that unnamed figures from the United States conspired against Raila Odinga in the August 9 General Election.

Ongwen said that some of the board members of the firm that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) charged with deploying the election technology are US nationals.

The electoral agency contracted Smartmatic International Holding B.V to supply the voting technology in the elections conducted two months ago.

He said the supposed conspirators were keen on not allowing astute leaders of the late John Magufuli's kind to take power in the East African region.

"Look at the board of Smartmatic. You will see that a former president of the United States of America (USA) is a member and is somebody some of you might even have admired. And they said not again to have a Magufuli in East Africa. So this thing was not being done here in Karen, this was a global conspiracy. It is a reality," said Ongwen.
