- Supreme Court judges absolved President Uhuru Kenyatta from any blame in the August 8 General Election, as they gave their reasons for annulling last month’s presidential vote results
- They said the petitioner in the case, National Super Alliance’s (NASA) Raila Odinga, had failed to prove his allegations that Uhuru had violated the Electoral Offences Act in his conduct in the run-up to the polls
Joseph Maluki: Judges are not a batch of
fools. These are learned people. They read widely and are knowledgeable about
many things. For instance they know the Bible, the Koran, and all religious
books. They can play with one’s mind. They are wise men and women. So don't
expect them to just talk the way you expect.
Kush Jules: That's not the case. The court clearly said the IEBC refused to have its server’s scrutinized. They concluded that the commission was hiding something. We can only say Uhuru is clean after the servers have been scrutinized. It is clear that individuals at IEBC were involved in electoral fraud.
Sufkim Ndamathia: Maraga has opened a can of worms while seeking personal glory, all in the name of serving a country. Maraga will cost Kenya money in repeat elections, petitions.
