A presidential candidate in the August 8 General Election has hit out at President Uhuru Kenyatta noting that he (Uhuru) will lose in the fresh election ordered by the Supreme Court on Friday.

Leader of the Alliance for Real Change (ARC), Mohammed Abduba Dida, reiterated that NASA leader Raila Odinga will defeat Uhuru if the polls will be conducted in a free, fair and credible manner.

In a statement, Dida also revealed he would drop his presidential ambition and support the former Prime Minister.

 "From Uhuru Kenyatta's reactions after the Supreme Court ruling, even a class one kid will tell you that Raila Odinga will win the election in November if the election is free and fair. Uhuru knows very well that he is a one-term president. I will not contest, I'll support Raila Odinga, he means well for this great nation," stressed Dida.

Uhuru hit out at the Supreme Court on Saturday questioning the grounds on which his nullification was determined.

Accompanied by his deputy, William Ruto, he threatened to deal with the Judiciary should he be re-elected.

“Even if you are so stupid, ask yourself something: The people elected an MCA, results were transmitted, and no one asked questions. Those of MPs and senators were transmitted, and no one asked questions and they have been sworn in.

“Those of governors were transmitted, no one asked questions. Now how do four people and wake up and say there was a technicality in the transmission of the results of the President only? How?” asked Uhuru.

The Law Society of Kenya (LSK) led by its President, Isaac Okero, censured the Head of State and other leaders against such attacks on the Court.
