Uhuru, IEBC lawyers react to Supreme Court ruling

President Uhuru Kenyatta has termed the Supreme Court ruling that has nullified his August 8 victory political.

Speaking to the media after the ruling, Kenyatta’s lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi said that the Supreme Court failed to uphold the law.

“This decision is absolutely devoid of an act of legal reasoning, but we will leave it, it’s the Supreme Court that makes the final decision,” said Ahmednassir.

“Our clients won by 1.4 million,” he added.

On his part, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) lawyer, Paul Muite, welcomed the ruling saying: “The Supreme Court has spoken, right or wrong the Supreme Court has spoken.”

Muite added that what remains is a fresh opportunity for the people of Kenya in exercise of their sovereign authority to reinstate with clarity the winner of the August 8 poll.

This came just moments after the Supreme Court nullified the presidential election after ruling that the electoral commission did not conduct the poll according to the law.

Fresh elections are now expected to be conducted by November 1 this year.
