The Supreme Court of Kenya has announced that it will deliver its full judgement on the recent presidential election petition on Monday.

The court’s registrar Letizia Wachira issued a notice on Saturday noting the judgement will be issued via email.

On September 5, 2022, the Supreme Court judges led by Chief Justice Martha Koome said they would deliver the full judgement on the presidential election petition filed by Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga and his running mate Martha Karua and six other petitioners in detail within 21 days.

“Take notice that the reasons for the judgment of the court, that was delivered in this petition on the 5th day of September 2022, will be delivered on the day Monday the 26th September 2022, at 2:30 pm through email,” the statement read.

The Supreme Court delivered the initial unanimous judgement on September 5, 2022, upholding President William Ruto’s victory in the August 9, 2022 election.

The 7-judge bench said it failed to find enough evidence to warrant the nullification of the election as prayed by the petitioners.

"This is a unanimous decision of the court and we make the following orders; The presidential election petition number E005 of 2022 as consolidated with presidential election petition numbers E001, 2, 3,4,7 and 8 of 2022 are hereby dismissed," she ruled.

"As a consequence, we declare the election of the first respondent as President-elect to be valid under Article 143 of the Constitution. This being a matter cutting across the public interest, we order that each party bear their own cost. It is so ordered."

However, the Azimio coalition leaders said they respected the Supreme Court’s ruling even though they did not agree with the ruling.
