Raila, Kalonzo taken to court

The NASA leaders now find themselves headed once again to the Supreme Court over the repeat election.

The leaders have been taken to the apex court by the Institute for Democratic Governance who want them punished for alleged electoral offences that occurred before the October 26 repeat presidential election.

Other leaders the institute also want to be punished include NASA co-principals Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetang'ula and Siaya Senator James Orengo.

In the petition filed by the Kioko Kilukumi, the institute claim that the violence that rocked parts of the country was as a result of the call by NASA leaders to their supporters to boycott the elections.

"The people of Kenya were entitled to participate in a presidential election free from threats, fear, intimidation, violence, and interference from their right to vote," the petition reads in part.

Most of the violence occurred in perceived NASA strongholds of Kibera and the Nyanza counties of Kisumu, Migori, Homabay and Siaya where no elections were held at all due to what the IEBC termed as "security concerns".

Last week, the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights said 54 deaths had been recorded and 150 people injured, including police officers, since the election period started.

KNCHR said after the August 8 election, 34 deaths and 90 injury cases were recorded.

“Between October 25-27 during the repeat presidential election, 12 deaths and 60 cases of injuries were recorded,” Kagwiria Mbogori, the KNCHR chairperson, said.

The commission noted that while some parts of the country proceeded with the polls, some sections of the country embarked on protests and boycotts against the fresh presidential polls.

According to the findings, between October 25 and 27, there were 12 deaths were reported, including a minor and eleven men aged between 18 and 45 years.
