The bodyguard who had accompanied the NASA presidential Candidate Raila Odinga and the Bungoma Senator were denied entry into the premises on allegations that they were armed.

Nasa has been accorded five hours to present their case before the seven-judge bench headed by Chief Justice David Maraga while the IEBC and its Chairperson will have three hours and one and a half hour respectively to respond.

President Kenyatta has been allocated three hours before the judges to lay out their case and respond to NASA’s claims.
