What you need to know:

  • On Friday, Mr Odinga added yet another demand when he asked Jubilee to withdraw a raft of amendments to electoral laws which have been presented to Parliament.

  • On Saturday, John Mbadi, one of Mr Odinga’s closest allies and the Leader of Minority in National Assembly, reiterated his boss’ “stance should the government fail to follow the Supreme Court judgement to the letter.”

  • Opposition coalition Nasa has tabled a list of nine areas of reforms that they say must be taken before the fresh election, which the electoral commission has set for October 26

The cryptic message by Nasa leader Raila Odinga that there would be no repeat presidential election unless the coalition’s demands for reforms are met has sent Jubilee back to the drawing board as they try to unravel what he really means.
