Kenya: Pre-trial hearing continues at Supreme Court


The Supreme Court resumed sitting today for  the pre-trial conference of presidential petitions filed against President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta which began yesterday.

The Supreme Court Judges, Chief Justice Willy Mutunga, Justice Phillip Tunoi, Justice Mohammed Ibrahim, Justice Smokin Wanjala, Justice Jackton Ojwang and Justice Njoki Ndungu is hearing several applications made by parties.

Judges yesterday during the course of the hearing ordered a thorough scrutiny of form 34 from all 33,400 polling stations and re-tallying of presidential votes in 22 polling stations.

One of the petitions filed by Prime Minister Raila Odinga seeks several declarations from the Supreme Court, among them those that could, if granted, force fresh presidential elections through invalidation of the recent poll.
