Senior counsel Fred Ngatia representing Dr. William Ruto President elect, informed the Supreme Court Judges that the suspicious behavior of the Petitioner filing false documents before it , caused the nullification of 2017 Presidential election.

And he urged the Court to upheld Dr. Ruto victory , since the election was the most transparent and credible in their entire African Continent. PHOTO / CORRESPONDENT

In his first attempt Dr. Ruto won

By African Times Special Correspondent

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

matter rests.

The petitioners are yet to provide a

single proof that Raila’s votes were

added to Ruto.

2. Was the technology used up to standard?

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

intercepted and edited” turned out to be

just that, a reimagined James Bond


4. Are the physical Form 34As different from those on the IEBC Portal?

The Scrutiny report has killed the

Petitioner allegations of fraud .

5. Did the postponed elections deny Raila votes?

How is that possible? when the said

areas had higher or similar turnout

(presidential) with surrounding areas as

the figures showed?

6. Was the discrepancies between votes for the governor and the president explained?

The hyped lorry full of track

allegations of evidence produced nothing

and other stories imaginations of

server hacking explained into details.

The few discrepancies were also


7. Did IEBC tally and verify results according to law?

Tallying (aggregating forms 34As) was

done with precision

Verification (confirming if the physical

34As match the upload one) was done

with unmatched accuracy.

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.
