ISSUES:

Whether the presidential election was free, fair and credible.

Whether the rejected votes should have been included in the final tally of the presidential poll.

What consequential declarations, orders and reliefs should the court grant at the end of the hearing.

Supreme Court rejects Africog’s application to compel the IEBC to produce the marked voter register in court; rules notice was filed late.
PRELIMINARY APPLICATIONS
* Supreme Court :4 Rulings delivered
1. 900 Affidavit By CORD alliance rejected as prejudicial to the respondents
- not correctly filed
- forensic audit of IEBC IT system rejected and request should have been done before the petition began
2. Katiba Institute disallowed to act as amicus curiae “friends of the court.”
3. Court rejected an application by the African Centre for Open Governance (Africog) to compel the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to produce the manually marked register used during the March 4 vote.
==================================================

Day two of the presidential petition hearing was the respondents’ day in court and they did not disappoint the defense teams argued their cases accusing prime minister Raila Odinga of trying to force a re-run in a rebuttal of allegations filed by the cord leader to nullify the presidential results.

Uhuru Kenyatta pronounced 4th President of Kenya & Raila says ‘No concession.”

===================================================

A carnival mood engulfed the central Kenya stronghold of President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta after election results showed he had opened an unassailable lead and IEBC Chairman Hassan provided a Certificate of the Results to Mr. Kenyatta.

Thousands of locals poured out into the roads leading to Ichaweri, Uhuru’s rural home in Gatundu South as early as 4.00 am, where they sang and danced in celebration.

Mr Kenyatta garnered 6,173,433 votes out of 12,338,667 total votes cast in last Monday’s election. This gave Mr Kenyatta a clear 50.03 per cent win while his main challenger Raila Odinga garnered 5,340,546 (43.28pc)

 

There was traffic gridlock on the Thika superhighway caused by huge mobs who were waving twigs, TNA banners and blowing vuvuzelas, particularly in Kasarani, Githurai, Juja and Witeithie centres.

Motorists were were forced to join the celebrating crowds, but there were no acts of lawlessness reported.

At Gatundu, a crowd pitched tent outside the entrance to the Kenyatta family home which was heavily guarded by security personnel.
Mr Kenyatta’s supporters included youths, women and children many of whom walked for long distances while others rode on pick-ups and lorries.

Most business premises in Gatundu town remained closed

Simon Kihoro, the chairman of Thika Slum-upgrading and Settlement Scheme termed Mr Kenyatta’s election as a victory for the country.

“He is not going to be president for Jubilee coalition, but the entire country. His opponents should now forget their differences and join him in nation building,” he said.

In Nyeri, hundreds of residents took to the streets as early as 5am as motorists blared their car horns and drove around the town.

Earlier, residents had remained glued to their television screens eagerly awaiting the final tally and announcement.

Last night, security was beefed up in Nyeri town and its environs as residents waited for the final results.

Voters, who thronged polling stations as early as 5am on March 4 General Elections, hope last Monday’s polls will restore Kenya’s image and delete the bloody post-election violence experienced after the 2007 December General Elections.

The electoral commission was due to announce the final results at 11am in Nairobi.

Mr Kenyatta supporters also broke into song and dance in Nairobi, Nakuru and Eldoret.
