Kenya’s Supreme Court Explains Why It Annulled Election Results

Uhuru Supporters, Kenya Supreme Court

Majority of Kenyans have been glued on their television sets for the whole day keenly following up on the country’s Supreme Court detailed judgement as it was trying to explain why it ordered a re run of the election.

The Supreme Court has accused the country’s electoral authorities of ignoring calls by the opposition to explain some voting irregularities that are believed to have led to the annulment of last month’s presidential election result.

The deputy chief justice, Philomena Mwilu said that the voting process was neither transparent nor verifiable. She said the denial by the electoral body to grant access to its internet servers implied that opposition claims of hacking could be true.

While the Court’s session continued, some Jubilee Party supporters protested outside the Supreme Court over the judgement that nullified the presidential election results.
