A look at Kenya's presidential candidates … again

President Uhuru Kenyatta's lawyer Fred Ngatia

The court ruling did not attribute any blame to President Kenyatta's party or campaign.

Many residents were heartbroken but said they were determined to re-affirm President Kenyatta's victory when the election is repeated. But two of the six judges on the panel were said to have disagreed with the ruling.

A rerun of the vote raises fears of a return to violence in a country with a history of combustible electoral politics. "And again, I say peace ... peace, peace, peace", he said in a televised address.

The president is calling on Kenyans repeatedly to remain peaceful in a country where some elections have been followed by deadly violence.

ODM National Treasurer Mr Timothy Bosire said opposition has been denied victory for too long and it is clear that Jubilee rigged the elections. But this country remains riven by tribal rivalries that come to a head at election time, largely between Kenyatta's Kikuyu tribe and Odinga's fellow Luos.

Election results announced last month showed President Uhuru Kenyatta was re-elected with 54 percent of the vote, 1.4 million more votes than opposition candidate Raila Odinga.

And he ordered that a new election be held within 60 days. The opposition claimed security forces killed more than 100 people during protests while police confirmed 10 deaths in Nairobi and didn't release tolls from other areas. In 2013, the Supreme Court dismissed his petition.

However, in a dramatic and widely unexpected turn of events, the Supreme Court agreed with the opposition coalition.

He validated opposition leader's argument that there had been "irregularities and illegalities", notably in the transmission of election results.

Many local and worldwide observers-including South Africa's former President, Thabo Mbeki, and former U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry-have said that they were satisfied with the result and that the elections were basically free and fair.

The court's full ruling must be available within 21 days.

On Friday, he said that the members of the election commission overseeing the vote should face criminal prosecution. In that judgement there are certain things they will give us about errors what happened during the last election.

He called for those guilty of wrongdoing to be prosecuted.

NASA official and lawyer, James Orengo, had argued that irregularities - including unsigned and fake tally forms, hacked servers and deliberate miscounting - had affected around one-third of the 15.5 million votes cast.

Votes counted in a significant number of polling stations were not counted, tabulated and accurately collated. "While this decision cements the view that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission was biased, it demonstrates that independent checks and balances do exist", she said.
