The lawyers for the chairperson of Kenya’s electoral commission have mounted a spirited defence at the Supreme Court hearing on the challenges to the presidential election result.

Chairperson Wafula Chebukati had been accused of violating the constitution and electoral law during the declaration of the election results.

Appearing before a seven-judge bench, lawyers have told the court that Mr Chebukati was mandated by law to announce the results.

They described the petition challenging Mr Chebukati as a witch hunt and full of speculation because no evidence had been presented to support the allegations.

While admitting that there were a few errors, the electoral commission lawyers insist that the election was conducted according to the law and there were no sufficient grounds to warrant a nullification of the results.

They want the petition dismissed.
