The Kenya Kwanza government and the opposition led by Azimio la Umoja camp have continued to fight over the results of the August elections.
The new development comes as the two camps oppose each other on whether the ‘Cherera Four’ IEBC Commissioners should be prosecuted.
Azimio leader Raila Odinga who was present alongside Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka criticised Ruto’s government over what he termed as going back to the “Nyayo regime”.
“No one should lie to this regime that we will sit back and watch a return of the Nyayo regime by another name,” Raila said.
The ODM boss also urged the four commissioners not to answer summons from the justice and Legal Affairs Committee (JLAC) for a hearing on four petitions filed against them.
“This probe is politically motivated; it is a continuation of the witch-hunt mission that Ruto is on. We advise the commissioners to boycott it in the interest of constitutionalism and rule of law,” Odinga said.

Ex-Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo’s opener placed him as the first man to score at five World Cups. He scored a penalty kick in the 65th minute.
For Ghana, the defence was in shambles, two costly mistakes led to the 2nd and 3rd goals for Portugal. The first goal by Ronaldo was contested by Black Stars players who asked the referee to check the VAR but bore no fruit.
Senegal, Tunisia, Morocco, and Cameroon have all played in their groups and have not scored a single goal in their first matches.
