MUBARIKIWE MPAKA MSHANGAE - DP Ruto Reacts after Supreme Court Judgement

DP Ruto speaks moments after Supreme Court judgement.

DP Ruto took his Twitter handle, to thank God and Kenyans at large for giving President Uhuru Kenyatta a second term in office following the Supreme Court judgement which upheld his October 26 election victory.

“HALLELUYAH! GLORY TO GOD IN HEAVEN. HE HAS REMEMBERED OUR NATION,GIVEN US HOPE & FUTURE. WAKENYA JAMENI MUBARIKIWE MPAKA MSHANGAE TOGETHER.” Reads DP Ruto’s tweet

The ruling now paves way for President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta to be sworn in next week on Tuesday according to the constitution.

Two separate petitions had been brought before the apex court seeking to annul Kenyatta's victory.

Former Kilome MP Harun Mwau, activist Activist Njonjo Mue and a voter Khelef Khalifa had asked the court to nullify Kenyatta's win on grounds that there was low voter turnout and violence in some areas that saw the election not conducted.

The petitioners argued that failure by the IEBC to carry out election in the 25 constituencies was unconstitutional and that the voter turn-out was so low such that it cannot be said that those who came out to cast their votes, represented the whole country.
