The Supreme Court has nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election in the August 8 elections and ordered new elections to be conducted in 60 days.
Four judges sitting on the bench ruled in favor of NASA’s petition asking President Uhuru’s re-election to be nullified citing massive irregularities in the just concluded polls.
Two judges, Njoki Ndung’u and Jackton Ojwang ruled against the petition.
Chief Justice David Maraga said the Independent Boundaries and Electoral Commision (IBEC) did not conduct the election in a free and fair manner.
He said that the polls agency failed, neglected or refused to conduct the election in keeping with laws.
“Presidential election was not conducted in accordance to the Constitution.The results are null and void,” Maraga said
The constitution provides that where the elections are nullified, fresh elections must be held within 60 days after invalidation of the presidential poll.
The Court court however found no evidence of misconduct on the part of the third respondent who is President Uhuru Kenyatta.
