Supreme Court to deliver reasoned judgment on Raila Odinga Presidential petition via email on Monday, September 26, at 2.30 pm.
The Supreme Court of Kenya is set to deliver its full reasoned judgment on the August presidential election petition on Monday.
Letiza Wachira, the court’s registrar, in a notice released on Saturday, September 24, stated that the verdict will be sent through email to the petitioners, respondents, interested parties, and the media.
“Take notice that the reasons for the judgment of the court will be delivered at 2:30 pm through email,” an excerpt of the notice read.
The reasoned judgment is a follow-up to a summary decision issued on September 5 after a 14-day hearing.
The court unanimously upheld President William Ruto’s election and dismissed a consolidated petition in multiple suits filed by among others Ruto’s main challenger Raila Odinga.
The apex court judges, led by Chief Justice Martha Koome while reading the summary on Monday, September 5, declared that the petition filed by Raila Odinga and his Azimio La Umoja running mate, Martha Karua, was hot air.
She added that lawyers representing the two opposition leaders presented forged and fake evidence in court and could not also prove that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) systems were hacked and manipulated by Venezuelan national, Jose Camargo.
