As the Judges retire to write
judgements. The Supreme Court
consolidated the petitions and came up
with nine determinations most likely
will uphold or nullify Ruto’s victory.
1. Did Ruto get 50%+1
The custodian of figures (IEBC) not only
showed what the official turnout out
was, but also how they arrived at it and
since the petitioner’s don’t have a
contrary source of turnout figures, the
The petitioners are yet to provide a
single proof that Raila’s votes were
added to Ruto.

IEBC IT expert argued that the
technology failed by a lot hence didn’t
meet the legal standards.
The evidence shows that out of 46,229
only about 200 kits failed. That’s 99%
Also, over 99% of the form 34As were
successfully uploaded to the portal.
3. Was the IEBC portal hacked?
John Githongo himself disowned the
forgery he submitted to the Apex Court.
Nyagaya’s affidavit simply told the
court the list of IEBC staff who had
access to the system.
The science fiction of “forms were

IEBC also recorded clerical errors and
submitted them to Court as the law
8. Are the alleged irregularities and illegalities enough to alter the results.
Up to now, the petitioners can’t show
the court evidence to prove
irregularities, let alone illegalities.
And even if they were to be found, they
don’t affect the results in a single
Jokes like blaming Chebukati for
procurement, the job of the CEO, are
amusing. But that’s all they are.
9. What orders can the Supreme Court give?
By law, the Supreme Court can only
uphold or nullify elections, they don’t
have the power to declare the Petitioner
Raila Amollo Odinga as the President
The law is very clear on how to remove
Chebukati in Article 252 clause 2 of the
Constitution of Kenya and the Supreme
has no power to remove IEBC
commissioners from office.
