Elec­tion can’t be le­gal if there were ungazetted cen­tres

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

In their sub­mis­sions to the Supreme Court, NASA prin­ci­pals Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka, who are the pe­ti­tion­ers in the case, ar­gued that the IEBC­con­ducted a sham­bolic elec­tion marred by mas­sive ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties and rig­ging, in vi­o­la­tion of the Con­sti­tu­tion. They said the IEBC used ungazetted and un­des­ig­nated polling sta­tions and pre­sid­ing of­fi­cers in ar­eas con­sid­ered Ju­bilee strongholds, who in turn sub­mit­ted in­valid re­turns in favour of Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta. How then can the elec­tion of gover­nors, se­na­tors, MP, woman reps and MCAs be le­gal?
