Today, the supreme court of Kenya has upheld the results of the 2022 general election by the IEBC. This comes after Raila Odinga through his legal team petitioned for the declaration of William Ruto as the president-elect in the 2022 general election by IEBC.
The supreme court found that:
- The forms 34A in the servers and those from the polling stations were matching and had not been tampered with in any way.
- There was no proof of voter suppression resulting from the postponing of voting in some sections of Kenya
- The distancing of 4 commissioners of IEBC from the results announced by the IEBC chairman was not enough reason to nullify an election that had not faced any substantial issues until the last minute.
- The declared president-elect attained a threshold of 50% plus 1 vote of the total votes cast.
