Right after National Super Alliance (NASA) announced that it will not be filing a case against the re-election of President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, the Civil Society has announced its intention to petition the election results come Tuesday 15th August at the Supreme Court.

This could delay Uhuru's swearing in that as the President of Kenya for the second tenement, that is scheduled for August 29.

This decision is in line with the consititution which determines that the president elect and his deputy are to be inaugurated on the Tuesday following the 14 date of the declaration of the presidential election results if no petition is brought forth.

NASA disputed the results as given by the Independent Electrol Board Commission (IEBC) declaring Uhuru as the president elect .

The opposition party claimed that Jubilee interfered with the numbers while calling out IEBC for failing to act on the problems raised by the NASA concerning administration of the body during the voting process.
