President Uhuru Kenyatta has opposed the Opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) election petition challenging his re-election, urging the Supreme Court to dismiss it.

In his affidavit, the President says the polls were conducted peacefully and in accordance with the law, denying any form of corrupt influences on voters in the run up to the elections as alleged by the opposition.

The President further states that the allegations are devoid of any evidence, criticizing the opposition chief for enjoining Deputy President William Ruto in the case while disparaging his victory adding that DP Ruto is not party to the petition.

President Kenyatta also denied threatening chiefs on his campaign trail in Makueni County, adding that he was only cautioning the government officials against departing from their obligations to maintain political neutrality.

At the same time, Jubilee deputy chief agent, Winifred Guchu, argued that there is no material evidence to warrant a repeat of August 8 General Election, discounting alleged disparities in Forms 34A and Forms 34B.

Guchu termed the petition by NASA as exaggerated facts, peddling outright falsehoods in a bid to mislead the court.
