Kenya’s Supreme Court explains why it nullified elections

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Supreme Court in Kenya is giving a detailed ruling on why it nullified the 8 August presidential elections, which it declared neither transparent nor verifiable.

The court has so far said Kenya’s Electoral and Boundaries Commission failed to verify the results of the election before announcing them.

The commission was also unable to explain what had happened to the results from over 11 000 polling stations which were required by law to be sent to tallying stations.

The court says it was forced to accept claims by the opposition that the computer system had been hacked and data interfered with, after the commission refused to allow full access to its computer system. Click below for more on the story:
