Kenya's Supreme Court Set To Deliver Judgment On Odinga's Presidential Election Petition

Kenya's Supreme Court Set To Deliver Judgment On Odinga's Presidential Election Petition

Kenya’s Supreme Court will this Monday deliver its judgement on the presidential election petition filed by former PM Raila Odinga who is challenging the outcome of the August 9th poll.

The electoral commission declared Deputy President William Ruto the winner with 7.1 million votes while Odinga came second with 6.9 million.

The Supreme Court made history five years ago when it annulled the outcome of the poll citing procedural irregularities and illegalities.

This time, Odinga wants it to overturn the result and either declare him the winner or order a re-run.

Odinga has accused his rival of hacking the electoral body’s systems and deducting some of his votes. Both the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and Ruto deny the claims.

He also wants the electoral commission’s chairman barred from overseeing another poll.

Four out of seven commissioners disowned the results announced two weeks ago and supported Odinga’s petition. They accused their boss of being unclear.

@Chihombe, there's something called strategic relationships. ZANU, KANU and ANC share liberation movement relations.

Why shouldn't CCC likewise cultivate alternative relationships? It has worked well with HH in Zambia. It may work in Kenya. And possibly in South Africa where Malema and Maimane keep ANC focussed on Zimbabwe transgressions.

Besides Chamisa is only following in the footsteps of MRT who once invited Odinga to be guest at MDC Congress

Yes, @Ake, I agree with you, if you consider winning 21 out of 28 Parliamentary seats in a by election as failure.

I wonder how you would define success.
