NASA warns Supreme Court ahead of 2-week battle

NASA has sent out a stern warning to the Supreme Court judges.

The coalition’s principal Musalia Mudavadi warned that they would not expect another ‘two-minute’ decision by the Supreme Court judges; as was the case in 2013.

NASA has asked the Supreme Court to nullify the presidential election held 10 days ago and order a fresh one citing massive irregularities and a flawed electoral process which handed President Kenyatta the win over him.

The then newly constituted Supreme Court, under the new Constitution first knocked out the 800 pages of Odinga’s filings and evidence before finally dismissing the case.

Mudavadi said that they were deeply disappointed and let down by the court during the last election petition in 2013 when the judges led by former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga read out their ruling in less than five minutes.

He said at the moment, all the country's hopes hinged on Chief Justice David Maraga and six other Supreme Court judges to oversee a free and fair hearing of their case.

"We feel passionately that justice will be served this time round because we have a tight case presented to the court," Mudavadi stated.

The 2013 judgment, delivered by retired judges Willie Mutunga (Chief justice), Kalpana Rawal (Deputy chief justice) and Philip Tunoi and serving judges Smokin Wanjala, Njoki Ndung’u, Mohamed Ibrahim and Jackton Ojwang; was criticised by a number of several constitutional lawyers for its ‘lack of depth and weak philosophical base’.

Mudavadi also demanded that the Supreme Court judges should not deliver a collective ruling but instead give their own individual pronouncements over the matter.
