Political analysts and legal experts have warned that Kenyan courts will be a beehive of activity with many candidates who lost in the just concluded elections rushing to unseat the candidates who were declared as winners based on the Supreme court ruling which declared the Presidential election as null and void and didn’t satisfy the constitutional thresholds which the court said was not credible, fair, transparent and verifiable, and called for a fresh election.
Petitioners are expected to file the cases within the window period of 28 days which is still open as per the August 8, date.
This development has sent chilling shivers down the spine of many elected leaders whose victory might be short lived. Some candidates from Western Province who claims that their victory was stolen are finalizing their petition papers with their lawyers.
In Kisii and Nyamira counties it’s the same rush to beat the constitutional deadline. A spot check in some law offices saw some petitioners line up and get the best brains in town to prepare their petition.
