Supreme Court Struggles With Written Opinion In Dismissed Raila Petition

12 Apr

Supreme Court Justices

I have learned from a reliable source the Supreme Court has been struggling to put together a written opinion not so much so to convince us Kenyans that their decision was right but to avoid being viewed with disdain among the international jurisprudential community.

The Court’s primary concern is having been recently heralded in both Kenya and in international circles as an emerging model of African jurisprudence operating in an independent environment without interference from outside, that notion is on balance and how the court explains its decision will determine whether that notion still holds or not.

In other words, whether the Court is deemed to be finally independent and judicious all depends on its written opinion, an opinion I have also learned from a different source will be issued on Tuesday.

There are a number of factual contradictions flying in the face of the Court’s decision that the Court must convincingly explain but one that stands out the most, is the Court’s own re-tallying which clearly shows inflation of votes in Jubilee strongholds and deflation of votes in Cord strongholds.

Although the numbers evincing this was small in the pre-decision partial results for the Court to get away with dismissing as “insignificant,” which is laughable, anyway, as each vote counts, it is believed the final results of the Court’s own ordered re-tallying shows an inflation and deflation of numbers the Court cannot possibly dismiss as insignificant and thus the reason many are dying to see what the explanation is.

I can confidently state based on what I know there is no explanation the Court will provide that can make sense even to those propagating it.

But something must be offered as an explanation and what that is is what we await knowing it’ll have a direct bearing on the Court’s credibility as the final arbiter of justice in our beloved country.

    These judges are very honorable men and woman. They stuck their necks above humanity and God gave them the answer. This could not be reduced in such minicule intellectual and academic gymnastics. It was about Africa. I myself though I am not Kenyan the whole court process I was shaking and consuming a lot of energy tablets. This was more than Uhuru Raila ding dong. It was going to affect us all.

    I am glad that the judges elevated the case above humanity into the heavens and they don’t have to worry above self serving minuscule issues

    The court was forced to give the verdict the way they it did because the fear of peace . they where told that there was going to be a blood birth if they suggested a re-run that was the course word from the holders of power. court was gonged by the call of peace.

    Why was the Supreme Court of Kenya surrounded by heavily armed security forces before, during, and after their deceitful decision?

    The issue is not the difference in votes between the leading candidates. The Constitution of Kenya 2010 is explicitly clear on the formula for winning the Presidential Elections: one must garner 50% +1 of all votes cast during a general elections; additionally, one must also get 25% in at least 24 counties. It is not about how many popular votes one gets. That threshold is meant to safeguard against one individual being elected by his ethnic group as just happened…Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta did not meet 50%+1 votes threshold! Mr. Issak Hassan and his colleagues manipulated the tallying process to give Mr. Kenyatta an apparent victory that never was…

    Can’t believe this could be happening in our beloved country, that justice is just but a dictionary word with no practical impact in our country

    Just steel 40 ballot papers in each of the 20000 polling stations/Jubilee strong holds = 800,000 votes
