Court nullifies Uhuru Kenyatta's election win, orders fresh election

The court, has reportedly ordered a new election to see the President-elect going through the same electioneering process again.

In a report by Bloomberg, a Kenyan court has nullified Kenyatta’s election win.

Kenyatta was announced winner of a recent election that saw him contesting with his long term rival, Ralia Odinga.

Immediately after news broke that Kenyatta had been re-elected as Kenya's president, people took to the streets across the east African nation.

While some celebrated with flags and vuvuzelas, others burned tyres and attacked businesses in a show of rage over an election they believe was stolen from opposition veteran Raila Odinga.

The post-election anger comes a decade after a disputed 2007 vote that degenerated into two months of politically motivated ethnic bloodshed, which killed 1,100 people and left 600,000 displaced.
