The ruling came a few hours after the petitioner Muroko claimed that he and his family had received threats to life.

Mr Muroko, through his lawyer Anthony Oluoch told the court that he needed the day to record statements at Kilimani Police Station.

Muroko and Okoth had challenged Sonko's win over claims of irregularities and bribery among other allegations.
