The National Super Alliance (NASA) has responded to the ruling by the Supreme Court that has upheld the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

NASA CEO Joseph Magaya stated that the alliance was going to proceed with its unnamed plan despite the ruling early today.

“NASA never participated in the election nor SCOK process.  NASA therefore has no comment on the decision rendered today.  NASA will proceed with its plan.  Climaxing in 5 days,” said Magaya.

However on his Twitter page, Magaya stated that they had refused to legitimize “the charade” through Supreme Court.

Commenting on the same issue, NASA leader Raila Odinga’s son Junior stated that the ruling was a step backwards, “One step forward ,two steps backward #SupremeJudgment,” he wrote.

Their reactions come a few hours after the Supreme Court delivered their verdict on the case filed by former Kilome MP Harun Mwai and two other Kenyans.

In his reading, the President of the court said they had paid attention to the specific prayers of petitioners as well as constitution in delivering their decision.

 “The court has unanimously determined that the petitions are not merited,” Maraga read in his brief ruling.
