Rapturous celebrations are on in parts of Kenya following a declaration by the country’s Supreme Court that the presidential election are “invalid, null, and void.”
The court has scalled for fresh elections within the next 60 days, but there are fears that the opposition party leader, Raila Odinga, may ask for the replacement of the Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission which conducted the flawed election.
The judgement is touted to be a first in Africa.
The Supreme Court blamed irregularities on the part of the electoral commission for the nullification.
UHURU Kenyatta won a second and final term in the disputed election.
The 55-year-old multi-millionaire was re-elected after last month’s election, beating his long-time, Odinga with 54 per cent of the vote.
