Security tightened ahead of ruling in Martha Karua Vs Anne Waiguru petition [PHOTOS]

Who will carry the day?

As at March 28, the Supreme Court had declined to stop the High Court from hearing afresh Martha Karua's case challenging Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru's election win.

In the decision read by Chief Justice David Maraga, the highest court in the land ruled that it cannot stop the proceedings at Kerugoya High Court since presiding judge Lucy Gitari is due to rule on an application challenging her jurisdiction to hear the case.
