A rare spectacle was witnessed at the Supreme Court in Nairobi after a Raila Odinga supporter caused a stir demanding to be allowed entry into the court to meet NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga.

The man calmed down after police officers assured him that he would see the Opposition leader.

Mr. Odinga on Wednesday announced that he would challenge the Presidential elections in the country’s highest court over what he termed as the making of a “computer-generated leadership.”

"We have now decided to move to the Supreme Court to lay before the world the making of a computer-generated leadership.”

"Our decision to go to court constitutes a second chance for the Supreme Court. The court can use this chance to redeem itself or, like in 2013, it can compound the problems we face as a country,” he told journalists.

He disputed the outcome of the polls in which President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared winner with 54 per cent of the votes against his 44 per cent.

The NASA leader claimed that the electronic transmissions system was hacked so as to manipulate the results in favour of President Kenyatta.
