The Supreme Court of Kenya has upheld President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory in the October 26 repeat presidential poll.

CJ David Maraga threw out both petitions before the court on the basis of merit.

The two petitions before the Supreme Court were filed by former lawmaker and businessman John Harun Mwau and Njonjo Mue, a human rights and judicial expert, and Khelef Khalifa, director of Muslims for Human Rights. Mue and Khalifa submitted theirs jointly.

The Supreme Court unanimously made the decision which now paves way for President Kenyatta’s swearing in for second term in office.
