In less than two hours, Kenya‘s highest court will rule on the lawsuit contesting the results of the presidential election.
The Supreme Court declared in a statement that the decision would be delivered at 12:00 local time (09:00 GMT):
It follows last week’s hearing of petitions filed by opposition leader Raila Odinga contesting the announcement of William Ruto as the victor of the presidential election held on August 9th.
After receiving 7.1 million votes to Mr. Odinga’s 6.9 million, the electoral commission pronounced Mr. Ruto the victor and the president-elect.
Mr. Odinga contested the results, pointing to irregularities, and asked the court to throw them out.
