The Supreme Court judges have unanimously ruled that the repeat presidential election of 26 October stands.

In a unanimous verdict read by CJ Maraga, the judges have dismissed all the petitions that sought to have the repeat presidential poll nullified and upheld Uhuru’s victory in the October 26 elections saying “there’s no case to answer”.

Former Kilome member of Parliament Haroun Mwau had filed a petition challenging the re-election of Uhuru Kenyatta.

President Uhuru Kenyatta will now be sworn in next week on Tuesday.

The Supreme Court had by a majority ruling in September nullified the 8 August presidential election saying it was marred by irregularities and was not done in accordance with the constitution.

The court further directed the IEBC to conduct a repeat presidential poll within 60 days.
