Reports say Kenya’s Supreme Court today upheld William Ruto’s victory in the last month Presidential election, ending weeks of political uncertainty and delivery a blow to challenger Raita Odinga, who had alleged fraud in the poll.
Chief Justice Marltia Koome said that the court dismissed all nine issues at the heart of the challenge to the results, which had delivered victory to Ruto by a Margin of less than two percentage points.
Justice Koome declared that the irregularities were not of such magnitude as to affect the final results of the presidential election.
Ruto, the fifty-five year old incumbent deputy President, is now due to take office on September, 13.
Both the Ruto and Odinga camps had pledged to accept the court’s the ruling.
