Kenya’s Supreme Court cancels election results

Kenya’s Supreme Court said on Friday that the election commission committed “irregularities and irregularities” during last month’s presidential election, damaging the integrity of the process that gave President Ohoro Kenyatta a second term of five years.

Four out of six judges said the elections were marred by abuses, and the judges then allowed the opposing judges to read their views before deciding whether the irregularities were serious enough to invalidate the election result.

The court declared President Ohuru Kenyata’s victory invalidated in the presidential election as a result of abuses by the Election Commission and said a new vote must be held within 60 days.

“The declaration of Kenyatta’s victory is null and void,” said Judge David Maranga, speaking of the verdict supported by four of the six judges.
