Petition Ruling Absolves Uhuru, Breaths New Life into Raila’s Prospects

Petition Ruling Absolves Uhuru, Breaths New Life into Raila’s Prospects

Posted on

Abstract

Kenya’s Apex Court delivered an earthshaking ruling following a petition on the outcome of the just concluded Presidential Election by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s main challenger Raila Odinga. While the Electoral Management Body (EMB) known as the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) was roundly criticized for mishandling the election, President Kenyatta was not found to have meddled in the elections. As a result, his pedigree as a champion of democracy has been further boosted while Mr. Odinga’s decision to seek legal redress rather than resort to mass action is widely supported. The real win for Kenya in this unfortunate and expensive debacle, however, lies not with the two main protagonists, but with the deepening of the democratic space and regained confidence in the electoral process by the Kenyan citizenry.
