Harun Mwau Files a Petition Against Uhuru’s October 26 win
Former Kilome Member of Parliament Harun Mwau has filed a petition at the Supreme Court challenging the validity of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election in October 26 repeat poll.
Mwau claims that the electoral commission and its chairman Wafula Chebukati failed to conduct the fresh election in accordance with the Constitution and electoral laws as directed by the Supreme Court, hence, acted in contempt of court.
He argues that failure by the IEBC to publish the nomination day in the gazette notice announcing the repeat poll was “unconstitutional, illegal, invalid, irregular and in violation of Articles in the Elections Act.”
According to the former MP, in conducing a fresh election, the IEBC should have called for fresh application and submission of documents by all candidates seeking to vie and collecting the prerequisite mandatory presidential candidates nomination fee of Sh200,000.
Mwau’s petition comes a few hours before the deadline for the filing of petitions challenging the October 26 repeat presidential poll whose results were declared on Monday (October 30).
Kenyatta garnered 7,483,895 votes while his main challenger Raila Odinga, who withdrew from the election, got 73,228 votes.
The apex court will have four days to hear and determine the dispute, and if the case sails through the preliminary stage, the hearing will start on Monday, November 13.
The court will have until November 16 to decide whether to uphold President Kenyatta’s win or to order for a fresh poll within 60 days.
If Kenyatta’s re-election is upheld, he will be sworn in on November 23, which will be seven days after the Supreme Court issues its verdict.
