Justice Ndungu together with Justice Jackton Ojwang dissented with the majority decision to quash the re-election of President Kenyatta.

She discounted key parts of the evidence that informed the decision of the majority opinion of the other four judges.

The judge faulted her colleagues for not using the certified forms filed in court by the IEBC to verify the allegations made by the petitioner, Nasa flag-bearer Raila Odinga.

Ndungu ruled that the majority opinion did not have the basis to overturn the election of President Kenyatta.

In her assessment, Mr Kenyatta was properly and validly elected as the president and the effect of the judgment was to deny Kenyans their right.
