President Uhuru Kenyatta's victory Upheld -Supreme Court Judgement

President Uhuru Kenyatta's victory Upheld -Supreme Court Judgement

The Supreme Court has dismissed two key petitions and upheld President Uhuru Kenyatta's victory in the re-run on October 26. One of the cases was filed by former Kilome MP Harun Mwau and the other by activists Njonjo Mue (International Commission of Jurists) and Khelef Khalifa (Muslims for Human Rights).


"The court has unanimously determined that the petitions are not merited," Chief Justice David Maraga ruled on Monday, after considerations by the six-judge bench. "The presidential election is upheld." The full judgment will be delivered in 21 days. Maraga explained they could not do this today, and that the petitions were consolidated and heard together, due to time constraints.



"After the hearings of the petitions, we retired with only two days left to the deadline. It was impossible to write a full judgement," he said. "What we [will] read today is a summary verdict on issues raised.
