The Presidential Petition that was filed by Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga last week brought with it more petitions at the apex court that have been the talking points for the past few days.
The petitions that have been filed since then had not been ruled on by the Supreme Court but this morning, some rulings have been ruled on by the apex court in Kenya.
Former Gatundu South Legislator, Moses Kuria, had brought in a petition a few days ago where he was accusing Raila Odinga of instigating the chaos that had been witnessed at Bomas of Kenya.
According to the available reliable reports taht we have this morning from the Supreme Court of Kenya, the petition by Moses Kuria has been thrown out by the judges at the Supreme Court.
Another one that has been thrown out is President Elect William Ruto’s request to have the Law Society of Kenya dismissed from the petition since Azimio la Umoja Running Mate Martha Karua is a member of the society.
David Mwaure’s request to join the presidential petition has also been thrown out by the Supreme Court this morning as per the reliable reports that we have with us from Milimani Law Courts.
The request to have individual Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners locked out from the presidential petition has also been thrown out as per the reports that we have with us.
The apex court this morning has however allowed the application by John Walubengo, with Dr. Joseph Sevilla as well as Martin Mirero who sought the leave to be joined in the presidential petition as amici curiae.
The court also allowed the application to admit on record the response affidavits of the four IEBC Commissioners including Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera, Justus Nyangaya, Francis Wanderi as well as Irene Masit.
