Barely 30 days after Kenyans went to the polls to elect their president, the country’s Supreme Court on Friday nullified Uhuru Kenyatta’s presidential victory in August.
Recall Uhuru Kenyatta, the incumbent president won the August 8 election by 54%, a result his main rival, Raila Odinga did not accept.
Odinga took the case to the country’s highest court claiming the election was rigged.
The nullification came after the court cited irregularities and other election malpractices.
Another election must be conducted within 60 days, the court says.
