All eyes on Supreme Court for explanation on voided presidential poll

NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 17 – Focus will be on the Supreme Court this week as the four judges who ruled in favour of nullifying results of the August 8 presidential elections make public their full judgment.

Chief Justice David Maraga, his deputy Philomena Mwilu, Smokin Wanjala and Isaac Lenaola who tilted the verdict by a majority of four against two dissenters, have been writing the judgment separately.

Justices Njoki Ndung’u and Jackton Ojwang, the dissenting judges, have also been writing their judgments separately

The judges have planned to meet early in the week to harmonise their majority decision

This comes in the backdrop of the filing of a petition by Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu challenging Maraga’s suitability.

The Nyeri Town MP said Maraga must be removed from office over what he called ‘gross misconduct’.

He later decided not to pursue the petition presently on account of pressure from the Jubilee Party.
