Kenya’s Supreme Court upholds Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election

Kenya’s Supreme Court has upheld President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election last month. It failed to grant the plea of two petitions before it to nullify the outcome of the October repeat elections.

The ruling paves the way for Kenyatta to be sworn in for a second term in office. His Jubilee Party won over 98% of fresh elections after the same court in September annulled the previous polls, citing widespread illegalities and irregularities.

The main opposition party led by Raila Odinga boycotted the repeat polls insisting the electoral body, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) implements reforms to prevent irregularities from recurring.
