Kenya opposition leader Raila Odinga said the ruling party cannot win next week’s national elections unless it rigs the result. The elections is scheduled to be held in Kenya on August 8th.

Voters will elect the President and his deputy, members of Parliament Senate and National Assembly and devolved government members county governors and ward representatives.

A veteran opposition leader, Odinga is running against incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta in next week’s August 8th polls, when Kenyans will choose a new president, lawmakers and local representatives.

Many voters are jittery, fearing a repeat of the 2007 polls, when Odinga alleged rigging and called for demonstrations. The political protests and ethnic violence that followed killed more than 1,200 people.

During the next polls, in 2013, Odinga also lost and called foul, but he took his concerns to court and the elections were largely peaceful.
