We are ready to cancel the next election-Chief Justice David Maraga
Sep 21, 2017, 00:35
Kenya's election commission initially declared Kenyatta, 55, the victor by a margin of 1.4 million votes but the result was immediately challenged in court by his nearest rival, opposition leader Raila Odinga.
The judge also said an assumption by the majority that since there were more votes cast in favour of the Mr Kenyatta compared to governors and MPs then IEBC had interfered with the result of the presidential election was wrong.
The decision was reached after opposition candidate Raila Odinga had challenged the results in court, raising accusations of hacking and the making of a "computer generated leadership".
Meanwhile, a court registrar says the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has received three petitions seeking the removal of Chief Justice David Maraga, Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu and a Supreme Court Judge Isaac Lenaola.
Odinga has claimed the election results were rigged.
The opposition coalition, Nasa, has laid out a series of demands, which include re-tendering the printing of ballot papers and the sacking of election officials, that it says should be met before it takes part in the repeat elections.
Kenya's opposition party said it will not participate in the upcoming presidential election without major reforms to the national electoral commission.

The company provided two electronic systems that identified Kenyan voters and transmitted election results from nearly 41,000 polling stations to a central tallying center.
The court has until Friday to deliver the full ruling, which would give the IEBC little time to make any necessary changes.
"The (board) can not therefore be said to have verified the results", she said.
They ruled that IEBC failed to verify the numbers before declaring Uhuru Kenyatta the victor and Nasa proved that declaration was made before receiving all the 40,883 Forms 34As in breach of the Elections Act.
"If IEBC had nothing to hide it would have readily provided access to ICT (information and communications technology) logs and servers to disprove the petitioner's claim".
In response to Tuesday's demonstrations, Maraga said that he and other members of the legal body which selects judges were "prepared to pay the ultimate price to protect the constitution and the rule of law".
