Uhuru wins round one of Supreme Court petition

Uhuru wins round one of Supreme Court petition

The court annulled the first presidential election in August, saying there were irregularities.

Kenyatta said in a statement on Sunday that the over ten petitioners' claims were unsubstantiated and a waste of judicial time and resources, reports local news portal Daily Nation.

Top stories in the Kenyan press on Monday included President Uhuru Kenyatta's defence in the ongoing court case involving opposition petitions against last month's disputed repeat presidential elections and farm invasions in Laikipia County."Uhuru: Raila behind court poll petition", reported the Standard newspaper, which pointed out that President Kenyatta has launched a spirited fight to defend his re-election in the October 26 repeat election.

Justice Maraga reiterated that the court will conclude the pre-trial of three petitions before it by the end of the day in accordance to Supreme Court rules which require a pre-trial sitting be held within eight days of the filing of petitions.

Lawyer Mellisa Ng'ania told the court that the memos would jeopardise the work of the IEBC and infringe on the independence of independent bodies.

In the same Tuesday evening ruling, the judges also agreed to another of Uhuru's lawyers' requests who had prayed that the National Super Alliance and its leaders be removed as respondents.

The court also heard an application by Jubilee Party seeking to be enjoined in a petition filed by the Institute for Democracy and Governance (IDEG) even as NASA lawyers contested its admissibility on grounds that it fails to meet the threshold for presidential petitions under Article 140 of the Constitution.

Mr. Odinga's lawyers led by Paul Mwangi, did not object to the ruling and excused themselves immediately the ruling was made.

The six judges led by Chief Justice David Maraga will formally begin hearing and determining Uhuru's fate on Wednesday, November 15.

Uhuru Kenyatta won the October 26 repeat election with a total vote of 7.4 million (98% of total votes).
