President Uhuru Kenyatta has again faulted the decision of the supreme terming it as a big mistake which undermine the will of 8 million Kenyans.
In an address to the nation from State House, Nairobi, the president wondered why a bench of four people will overturn the will of millions of Kenyans.
“The presidential election was not nullified on the assumption that there were irregularities in the election result forms. It is now manifestly clear that despite the fact that relevant forms had already been deposited in court by IEBC, no proper scrutiny or verification ever took place, which would have otherwise brought the court to the inescapable conclusion that the election result of the August 8 election was indeed valid,” Uhuru lamented.
The president said the Supreme Court owes Kenyans an explanation for their mistakes, and questioned the legality of the four judges.
Uhuru accused the chief justice David Maraga for basing his decisions on his political side and failing to evaluate the voluminous forms and other evidence presented by the Commission and the lawyers.
He said the election should be held within 60 days and assured the electoral body of government support to facilitate the repeat election.
Meanwhile IEBC changed the date from October 17 to 26 to allow it more time to prepare for the poll.
