Good Morning Kenyans.
The Supreme Court set the ball rolling on the type of atmosphere to be expected in the Presidential result petition hearing.
Led by the no-nonsense Chief Justice Martha Koome, the court got down to business by making several rulings during the pre-trial conference.
President-Elect William Ruto became the first casualty in the case after the apex court threw out seven of his petitions.
In what could be considered adding insult to injury, former Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria’s petition against Azimio’s flag bearer Raila Odinga, was also stricken out.
The court regarded Kuria’s petition lacked jurisdiction.
In a twist of events, the highest court in the country ordered a recount of votes in 15 polling stations within two days.
It also further gave orders that Raila should be given supervised access to the IEBC server.
This brings up the big question, who between Ruto and Raila has the upperhand so far in the case?
