Kenyan Court overturns 2017 presidential election

 

“A very historic day for the people of Kenya and by extension the people of Africa.”Raila Odinga

Supporters of the Kenyan opposition presidential candidate shout and gesture during a protest in the Mathare slums of Nairobi, a day after the presidential election. President Uhuru Kenyatta appeared headed for re-election but his rival Raila Odinga claimed a massive hacking attack had manipulated results, ratcheting up tensions in opposition strongholds.

The Kenyan court says the election was not conducted in accordance with the Constitution and has called for a new vote within 60 days. Odinga has claimed the results were hacked into and manipulated in favor of President Uhuru Kenyatta, who had won a second term.The six-judge bench ruled 4-2 in favor of the petition filed by Mr Odinga, who had claimed that the electronic voting results were hacked into and manipulated in favor of Mr Kenyatta. The president had won a second term with 54 percent of the vote. Kenya’s Supreme Court has overturned the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta, citing irregularities in last month’s election. The court has called for a new election within 60 days. Kenya’s electoral commission has said there was a hacking attempt but it failed. International election observers have said they saw no interference with the vote.

Police guard the Supreme Court building

Lawyers for Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta are calling the Supreme Court’s nullification of last month’s election a “very political decision” but they say they will live with the consequences.

Mr Odinga has contested the last three elections and lost each time. Each time, he has claimed the votes were marred by rigging. In 2013, the Supreme Court dismissed his petition.
