    The Supreme court of Kenya is smiling all the way to the bank in the wake of filing nine petitions challenging the recently concluded general elections.

    For one to file a petition at the Supreme court, they have to pay one million Kenya shillings for their petition to be accepted. Consequently, it goes without any doubts that the highest court in the land made some good cash on Monday.

    Out of the nine petitions, 8 are in support of Raila Odinga and Martha Karua while only one by the Gatundu South member of parliament Moses Kuria wants the Supreme court not to entertain the Azimio presidential candidate.

    In this Kuria case, Raila is the first respondent and Azimio is the second respondent. Moses Kuria and Mr King’ang’i want the apex court to dismiss the petition challenging the decision of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to declare William Ruto as the president elect.

    The two argue that Mr. Raila and his party caused the violence at the Bomas of Kenya and should neither be entertained by the courts nor granted the orders they are seeking from the highest court.

    Specifically, Kuria cites Raila’s chief agent Mr Satiabao ole Kanchori, and another agent, Narok Senator-elect Ledama Olekina who allegedly gained access to the podium and threatened the IEBC chairman Mr. Wafula Chebukati.

    “The actions of Mr Odinga and Azimio through their agents amounted to breach of national security as the same caused fear and panic not only amongst the Petitioners and all the persons present at Bomas but also amongst Kenyans across the globe who were keenly following the process on television,” states Mr Kuria in his affidavit.

    However, many legal minds have argued that Kuria’s case is likely to be dismissed since he needs to approach a criminal court to deal with those issues as opposed to an election court. Besides, it is said that Kuria will have a difficult task to prove beyond reasonable doubts if Raila and Martha instructed the two agents to cause chaos at Bomas.

    Other petitions that want Ruto’s win nullified are from activist Okiyah Omtatah, David Kariuki Ngari, Juliah Nyokai Chege, John Njoroge Kamau, Youth Advocacy Africa and former presidential hopeful Reuben Kigame amongst others.
