Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga said on Tuesday that his coalition would not participate in a re-run of a presidential election proposed for October 17 unless they are given “legal and constitutional” guarantees.

“You cannot do a mistake twice and expect to get different results”, Africa news quoted Odinga as saying.

Odinga, 74, made the threats on Tuesday, a day after the electoral body announced a date for the rerun ordered by the country’s supreme court.

Kenya’s Supreme Court on Friday ordered a re-run of the August 8 vote within 60 days, saying President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory was undermined by irregularities in the process.

However Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has dismissed claims by opposition leader Raila Odinga that the re-run elections slated for October 17 will be boycotted by the NASA coalition.

President Kenyatta issued a rebuttal to NASA’s boycott threats saying that the process will go on as planned by the IEBC, the elections body.

“There is no legal requirement that Raila be consulted. I was neither consulted. Kenya doesn’t belong to one man,” he said in a statement sent by his office.
