Raila fought for the Constitution, Uhuru is under oath to protect it.

Raila fought for the Constitution, Uhuru is under oath to protect it.

On 20th September 2017, the Supreme Court delivered its detailed judgement in presidential petition no. 1 of 2017. The electoral commission was thus under obligation to review the judgement and be guided accordingly. On 21st September 2017 Wafula Chebukati reacted diligently to the calls of the majority at the Supreme Court and indeed reaffirmed that the judgement impacted on the election operations and noted with great concern that proper technology usage was key to avoiding another nullification.

A nullification born out of four judges who defied the sovereign power of the people in the name of correcting an electoral process to befit their illusional standards. Elena Kagan a US Supreme Court Justice once said “the Supreme Court, of course, has the responsibility of ensuring that our government never oversteps its proper bounds or violates the rights of individuals. But the Court must also recognize the limits on itself and respect the choices made by the people” another Justice from the Supreme Court of the Worlds most advanced democracy Justice Stephen Breyer reiterated that “independence means you decide according to the law and the facts” -not politics.

Reasonably enough the Commission postponed the election date to 26th Oct 2017 so as to ensure they are fully prepared, to deliver an election that meets the standards set out by the Lord and savior of the NASA Coalition Justice Maraga. The four NASA messiahs ordered a fresh election and the Constitution that Raila Odinga wants all the credit for stipulates that the election be held within 60 days.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and the entire Jubilee party didn’t agree with the ruling. I was very bitter too but we did respect the power bestowed upon the Supreme Court by our very progressive Constitution. A Constitution that we are under oath to protect. The Supreme Court and the IEBC are both constitutional establishments. NASA didn’t agree with the IEBC just like we didn’t agree with the Supreme Court. If NASA thinks the IEBC stole their election, then we also think the Supreme Court stole ours. We said we’ll fix the Judiciary, yes we meant it! and we have a right to do it through the legal procedure. NASA said it wants to fix the IEBC, and yes they have a right to do it! but that should only be through the Constitutional process. Not the streets. The Constitution that you want credit for is for all of Us. Let us all adhere to it, live by it. Not through words but by deeds.

On 26th Oct 2017 We, as Jubilee supporters will heed the calls of our Constitution, we will arrive early at the IEBC polling stations countrywide and vote for his excellency Uhuru Kenyatta and WIllliam Ruto. As to whether NASA supporters turn up for that election, that’s none of our business. They have a right not to vote just like they have a right to vote. The government won’t arrest you for not voting. After the election we expect the returning officer Mr. Chebukati to deliver the results, the Supreme Court doors will be open for the aggrieved and after that the winner is to be sworn in by CJ Maraga. Raila and NASA should understand that the Constitution is for all of Us. It protects all of Us and most importantly they should recognize the fact that Uhuru and the ruling coalition are under oath to protect it.
