In Summary
  • Petitioners questioned the validity of the October 26 election.
  • President Uhuru Kenyatta says the claims are unsubstantiated.
  • He says no legal provision requires fresh nominations for the repeat election.

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Sunday asked the Supreme Court to dismiss two election petitions challenging his win.

In more than 10 affidavits filed in opposition to the petitions, President Kenyatta says the petitioners have made unsubstantiated claims.

‘WASTE OF TIME’

He further says the petitioners are no more than surrogates, agents and mouthpieces of Nasa and its leaders. 

"Accordingly, it is deceitful and misleading for the petitioners to masquerade as bona fide defenders of the public interest," he said in a statement.

The response states that apart from the frivolity and vexatious value, the entire petition is otherwise a patent opportunity of wasting judicial time and resources.
