Breaking News! The Supreme Court of Kenya Upholds Uhuru Kenyatta’s election citing lack of merit in the two petitions

Special Correspondent,

November 20th, 2017

The Supreme Court of Kenya today upheld the election of Uhuru Kenyatta by dismissing the two petitions before them on the basis of merit. In what is reminiscent of 2013 ruling the apex court through the president of the Supreme Court Justice David Maraga read a brief judgement citing lack of time for a detailed judgement—Unlike the case that annulled the election of Uhuru on August 8th, 2017—the Chief Justice did not promise a detailed ruling, but insisted it was not possible due to time constraints.

One is left wondering whether it was a predetermined judgment going by pronouncements made by Statehouse operative Denis Itumbi, who a day earlier had stated categorically that the President will be sworn in on the 28th of November for a second term.

The question now remains as to the legitimacy of President Uhuru and his recognition by Kenyans from the regions where no election took place. We predict this ruling will cement the calls for secession by the aggrieved parties who believe they have been robbed of victory a third time.

Some are wondering whether this could be the end of Kenya as one country under God.
