The Supreme Court has dismissed former Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria's petition filed against Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition leader Raila Odinga.

Kuria and the former Mbeere South MP Geoffrey King'ang'i filed a petition seeking the court to dismiss Raila's petition on alleged election malpractice committed by Raila.

According to the Supreme Court, Kuria's petition did not fall within the court's jurisdiction because it did not seek to challenge President-elect William Ruto's win nor did it name Ruto as a party to the petition.

"Indeed, Hon. William Ruto, is not even named as a party to the petition and the remedies sought are alien to those contemplated in the Constitution and in law, whether the election of the President-elect is valid," read the ruling.

"In view of the foregoing, the petitioners are therefore entitled to a refund of Kshs. 1,000,000/- deposited as security for costs paid upon lodging of the petition."

The Azimio coalition argued that the Supreme Court did not have the jurisdiction to hear Kuria's petition.

"Jurisdiction of the Supreme court in a Presidential Election is confined to determination of the dispute on the validity of a Presidential Election," the court papers read.
