The Supreme Court in Kenya has unanimously dismissed two petitions against President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election. Six judges of the apex court upheld the October 26 Kenyan repeat
election after throwing out the August 8 poll citing “irregularities and illegalities”.
In a judgement read by Chief Justice David Maraga, the judges said the two petitions filed by former assistant minister Harun Mwau and another by Njonjo Mue and Khelef Khalifa were not
merited. The dismissal of the two cases seem to now pave the way for Mr Kenyatta’s swearing-in for the second term on Tuesday next week.
