Shock as Kenya court cancels election result, demands re-run


NAIROBI: Kenya’s Supreme Court on Friday ordered a new presidential election after annulling the results of last month’s poll in a shock decision in favour of the opposition.
Joyous celebrations erupted outside the court and in Nairobi slums after the second term victory of President
Uhuru Kenyatta was declared “invalid, null and void”.
Veteran opposition leader Raila Odinga, 72, for whom the court decision represented a rare victory in his political career, hailed the ruling as historic.
“This is a historic day for the people of Kenya and by extension for the people of the continent of Africa,” said Odinga. – APP
