National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate Raila Odinga has laughed off the tyranny of numbers Jubilee Party enjoys in Parliament.

Addressing his supporters in Kibera on Tuesday, Raila said Jubilee has the majority in both the National Assembly and the Senate because it rigged the August 8 general election with the help of electoral commission.

"The numbers Jubilee is bragging about are products of the sham elections. The IEBC stole the elections, from the presidency all the way down to the MCA seats," Raila said, as quoted by the Nation.

On Sunday, President Uhuru Kenyatta declared Jubilee would impeach Raila if he wins October 17 repeat election.

"Even if he (Raila) is elected, we have the opportunity in Parliament within two or three months to remove him," Uhuru said speaking at State House, Nairobi.

However, the Opposition has dismissed the remarks terming them reckless and desperate.

"We want to thank the President for conceding defeat in favor of Raila but warn him that the Constitution is very clear on the grounds on which a president can be impeached," said Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang'ula also speaking during the Kibera rally.
