Supreme Court dismisses election petition, validates Uhuru Kenyatta’s win

By Ssebuliba Samuel:

Supreme Court in Kenya has upheld uhuru Kenyatta’s victory in the 26th general election that was highly disputed.

Giving its final judgment this morning, the Supreme Court agreed that all three petitions lacked merit

There were three petitions filed in court after the repeat poll on October 26.

Two of the petitions challenge the process and outcome while one of the petitions raises complaints against National Super Alliance leaders and whether they should be held liable for electoral offences.

A petition filed by Njonjo Mue together with Khelef Khalifa, another by former assistant Minister Harun Mwau, are contesting the October 26 poll arguing that the withdrawal of Raila Odinga from the case meant that the poll was void.

Now according to the program Kenyatta will be sworn in as the president nest week which will mark the end of leadership vacuum in Kenya.
