Uhuru’s major move ahead of Raila showdown

Uhuru's latest move has set the stage for a major showdown with Raila.

Last week, the NASA coalition NASA in a 25,000 election petition, asked the Supreme Court to nullify the presidential election and order a fresh one citing massive irregularities and a flawed electoral process which handed President Kenyatta the win over Raila Odinga.

On Thursday night, a confident Kenyatta posted on his social media pages a clip and pictures of him signing the legal papers at State House Kenya flanked by his team of lawyers who included Fred Ngatia, Ahmednasir Abdullahi, Katwa Kigen, Tom Macharia and Evans Monari.

Also present were Jubilee’s Head of Secretariat Raphael Tuju and the party’s Chief Agent and former Cabinet Secretary Davis Chirchir.

Lawyer Abdullahi said they were confident and assured Kenyatta’s supporters there was nothing to worry about in the petition as the election was peaceful.

"We are confident about the answers we give, We are bullish about everything we have done. And let the case start. We are ready,"Abdullahi beamed.

In his petition Raila accused the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) of manipulating votes in favour of Kenyatta and denying him the victory in the August 8 polls.

Raila and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka who are the first and second petitioners, identified specific irregularities which included their votes being added to Kenyatta’s in the presidential tallies.

NASA indicated that its agents in Kenyatta’s and Deputy President William strongholds of Central and Rift Valley respectively were thrown out and replaced by impostors who created fictitious names and signed blank result forms which the coalition claims they have sufficient  proof of.
