Jail Kenyan electoral commission officials, demands Odinga

President Uhuru Kenyatta during campaign rally

Kenyans have rushed to social media to express their views on a Supreme Court decision nullifying the result of the August 8 presidential election that declared President Uhuru Kenyatta the victor. It gave new hope to opposition leader Odinga, who had alleged the electronic results of the August 8 balloting were manipulated.

"It's a very historic day for the people of Kenya and by extension the people of Africa", Odinga said.

Following the election, worldwide monitors from the EU, the African Union and the U.S. had said there was no major fraud and urged Mr Odinga to concede.

Kenyan judges have slammed the "veiled threats" made by President Uhuru Kenyatta after the judiciary overturned his election on the ground that it was flawed.

The disputed 2007 election led to politically-motivated ethnic violence in which over 1,100 people were killed. Mr. Odinga, 72, brought the case before the Kenyan Supreme Court.

Marietje Schaake, a Dutch Member of the EU Parliament who headed the EU Election Observation Mission, noted there were some problems with insufficient records for voters whose identification could not be verified, but said there were "no signs of centralized or localized manipulation". He says the judges should know they are dealing with an incumbent president.

They say that if it will be hard to choose and collect viable replacements for these heads to conduct these new elections, they suggested the United Nations conducting these new elections.

"Six people have decided they will go against the will of the people" he said while calling for peace in a country where past elections have triggered deadly violence.

Speaking at a party meeting at his official residence, Nairobi's State House, Mr Kenyatta criticised the judges' decision and said he would return to the issue if elected. After the vote, Odinga rejected the results, claiming that the electronic systems were hacked.

The court further ordered Kenya's Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to conduct fresh polls within 60 days. The court said the election commission "committed illegalities and irregularities ... in the transmission of results" and will give details in its full ruling within 21 days.

"The reason why this election was not well run was because the IEBC had so little time to run it", Cheeseman said, noting that new election commissioners were named a mere seven months before the August poll.

Odinga also rejected the results before they were announced, accusing the commission of imposing "computer-generated leaders" on Kenyans.
