We will beat Raila in court, again - Uhuru

Uhuru now has two days to file back a response to Raila Odinga

Speaking at St Stephens Church in Nairobi during the service to commemorate the death of his father Jomo Kenyatta, Mr Kenyatta said that he was optimistic of winning the case logged by NASA candidate  Raila Odinga.

“We are confident and hope that what is up there will be a success. When we go through that process successfully, which I am sure it will be, we will come here to celebrate,” Uhuru has told a congregation on Tuesday.

Kenyatta’s sentiments come a day before his legal team finalizes the compilation and eventual submission of its response to the NASA petition.

The President's legal team was served with the petition through local dailies on Sunday and later served with  a copy.

Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka have sued the electoral body and Kenyatta for what the duo termed as gross misconduct in the just concluded elections.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court on its part pointed out that it had identified two major weaknesses in the case that is likely to affect the outcome,  a move that has NASA principal Musalia Mudavadi to warn the court “against making a 2-minute judgement as was in 2013.”

On Friday last week, NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka moved to the Supreme Court to challenge the reelection of President Uhuru Kenyatta in the August 8 elections.

IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati is listed as the second respondent in the historic case in which NASA submitted a 25,000-page document to the court’s registry citing massive irregularities in the exercise.
