Kenya’s Supreme Court has concluded hearing a petition seeking to overturn the outcome of the 9 August presidential election.

During Friday’s proceedings, lawyers for the petitioners accused the electoral commission of failing to comply with orders to open servers for scrutiny.

Lawyers representing veteran politician Raila Odinga urged the court to nullify President-elect William Ruto’s win, citing alleged irregularities.

In their rebuttals, lawyers for the respondents, who include Mr Ruto and the electoral commission, mounted a spirited defence asking the court to dismiss the case because no evidence had been provided to prove the elections were rigged.

It will be an anxious wait for the ruling that could change Kenya’s political landscape.

The judgement will be made on Monday.
