Kenya’s Supreme Court on Friday rejected the results of the nation’s presidential election that declared incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta the winner in August. The apex court said there were irregularities in the election proceedings and that a fresh poll should be held within 60 days, the BBC reported.
Protests had erupted in the Kenyan city of Kisumu and slums around the capital Nairobi following Kenyatta’s victory on August 11. The Opposition, led by Raila Odinga, had rejected the August 8 election as a “charade”. Odinga alleged that the election commission’s IT system had been tampered with.
