Petition to Supreme Court stops Kenyatta sworn

Former MP ask judges to nullify even the second Kenya elections

06-11-2017 by redazione

Among all the possible institutional or associative components of Kenya that were awaited today at the Supreme Court, Harun Mwau, a former member of parliament and constitutionalist, has emerged.
It is his only appeal against the election of Uhuru Kenyatta as President of the Republic of Kenya, for which the official ceremony of investiture of the new leader, proclaimed in the vote-bis on 26 October last, will be postponed to a date to be set aside.
Kenyatta had initially indicated the possible date of the ceremony on 14 November, but he expected it today, the last day available to those who intended to appeal against the electoral commission, to formalise it.
Instead, IEBC and Kenyatta will now have until Friday to present their defences, just as the coalition of Raila Odinga, called into question by two other petitions signed by civil rights associations, will have to do following the demonstrations and clashes that broke out on the day of the elections, and for its decision to boycott the vote.
The Supreme Court will have no more than 30 days to make its decisions and, if the latter elections are cancelled, new votes will be held.
This time, however, the chances of this happening seem to be smaller.
In the meantime, NASA, in addition to not having followed the legal procedures, has undertaken a controversial campaign of economic boycott of some companies considered close and conniving with the Government. Especially the telephone company number one in the country, Safaricom, to which most citizens also refer for the great use of the Mpesa money transfer system.
A boycott that does not seem to be in favour of the working class, because by putting many companies on their knees, there is the risk that many ordinary people, even Odinga's own voters, will lose their jobs.
