What Raila’s latest announcement means for Uhuru

His announcement will change some things for Uhuru...

In a press conference attended by MPs and other politicians, he disclosed that he has decided to move to court to contest Uhuru’s declaration as President-elect.

NASA’s deputy chief agent James Orengo had last week declared that going to court was not an option but the Opposition seems to have made an about-turn.

On Wednesday, Odinga announced that they will be filing a petition at the Supreme Court of Kenya to challenge the declaration of Uhuru as the President-elect.

"We have now decided to move to the Supreme Court to lay before the world the making of a computer-generated leadership." He said.

And this is what Raila’s latest announcement means for Uhuru.

If the election is determined as invalid a fresh election will be held within sixty days after the determination of the case. Meaning that Uhuru the President-elect and Raila the petitioner will face off at the ballot one more time just without the other candidates.

But if the Supreme Court determines the election of the President- elect to be valid, Uhuru Kenyatta will be sworn in for a second term on September 12 and not on August 29 as earlier determined.
