Stop at­tack­ing the Supreme Court and pre­pare for poll, Rongo MP tells Uhuru

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties | Nyanza -

Rongo MP Paul Abuor has told Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta and Ju­bilee Party to stop at­tack­ing the Supreme Court for nul­li­fy­ing his re­elec­tion on Fri­day.

Abuor said when the Au­gust 8 elec­tion re­sults were an­nounced, Uhuru and his team were quick to ad­vise NASA can­di­date Raila Odinga to re­spect the out­come and seek re­dress in the Supreme Court..

A new pres­i­den­tial vote was or­dered within 60 days. Abuor said the at­tack on judges shows Ju­bilee was shaky.

“Ju­bilee lead­ers should re­lax and avoid at­tack­ing Chief Jus­tice Maraga and judges if they have the votes they claim to have,” Abuor said.

He said the de­ci­sion showed that IEBC chair­man Wa­fula Che­bukati and his team did not carry out free, fair and ver­i­fi­able polls, adding that the new poll will be an acid test for them.
