Blow for Uhuru after today’s Court ruling

The development came shortly after two petitions were filed at the Supreme Court

The election bill was passed by Parliament ahead of the October 26 election and became law shortly after the repeat poll.

However, the law has since been challenged by two civil society organisations that have asked the High Court to suspend the implementation of the amendments introduced in the Elections Act.

Although President Kenyatta had indicated that he did not sign the laws in public interest, his party had moved to court seeking to be enjoined in the case filed by Katiba Institute and the Centre for Open Governance.

On Wednesday, however, Jubilee Party’s case application was dismissed by High Court Judge Chacha Mwita.

Mwita ruled that the case was of national interest and no longer a political party issue.

The judge had earlier suspended application of the controversial laws until the matter is heard and determined.

If the High Court ban on the election law is lifted, then it will apply in the hearing and determination of the Supreme Court petitions that have been filed against President Kenyatta.
