    The hearing of the presidential petition by the 7 Supreme  Court Judges kicked off on Wednesday with the petitioners presenting their submissions.

    The petition is being heard by Chief Justice Martha Koome, Justice Smokin Wanjala, Justice Isaac Lenaola, Deputy CJ Philomena Mwilu, William Ouko,  Mohammed Ibrahim and Njoki Ndung’u.

    Thursday September 1 will be the turn of the respondent in the petitions to defend themselves. The respondents include IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati, the Commission itself, each of the commissioners as well as President-elect William Ruto.

    The verdict of the petitions before the Supreme Court is expected to be issued on September 5.

    According to former Mandera Senator Billow Kerrow, there are two things that might impact the final decision of the court.

    “The most fundamental thing in this petition is the determination of the scrutiny of the IEBC servers and the ballot they are checking. These 2 actions will ultimately impact on the decision of the Supreme Court whether  to nullify this election or not,” Kerrow said in an interview with KTN News.

    The court ordered a recount of votes from particular constituencies as well as access to IEBC servers which the commission complied to.

    “For the first time IEBC, unlike 2017, has accepted to open its servers for inspection on court orders, last time they told the court that their servers are in France and the time is night and it is day, they played games. But if IEBC for whatever reason will not allow those guys to do the supervised scrutiny of the servers then clearly it would be a good reason for the court to start thinking about the case.
