Supreme Court rul­ing trou­bling, will cause in­sta­bil­ity

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

It is shock­ing and trou­bling that six judges of the Supreme Court can over­turn the will of mil­lions of Kenyans, us­ing ev­i­dence that did not prove NASA’s case “be­yond rea­son­able doubt”. The ev­i­dence does not prove that the will of the peo­ple, who lined up for hours, was sub­verted. Par­lia­ment should put in place laws that en­sure the thresh­old for over­turn­ing a pres­i­den­tial elec­tion is higher. We can­not be over­turn­ing elec­tions on flimsy ev­i­dence and tech­ni­cal­i­ties as this will lead to un­cer­tainty and in­sta­bil­ity in the fu­ture.
