Azimio leader Raila Odinga has said that there was no material difference between the summary and full judgments by the Supreme Court in the presidential petition.
In a joint statement with Narc Kenya Party leader Martha Karua on Tuesday, September 27, the Azimio top brass said that the full judgement lacked merit and was plainly ‘hot air’.
The duo further said that the judgement lacked integrity in both fact and law adding that it was not grounded on any evident logic.
“In our view, and we feel entitled to use the language of the Court the full decision lacks merit and is plainly "hot air." We accordingly reiterate our objections to the reasoning of the judges. It lacks integrity in both fact and law, and is not grounded in any discernable logic,” read part of the Azimio statement.
Raila and Karua faulted the apex court for overlooking the illegal conduct by IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati which the Court itself had established.
They added that the finding was a good reason for the Court to nullify the presidential election.
“On one hand, the Court clearly establishes the illegal conduct by Mr. Wafula Chebukati the Chairperson of the IEBC. On the other hand, however, the Court overlooks this critical finding and excuses Mr. Chebukati despite the glaring violations of the Constitution and the law,” the statement further read.
Raila and Karua said that the Supreme Court failed to satisfy the basic requirements of a fair trial after disregarding their evidence in the petitions filed before the Court.
The duo claimed that the Court acted unethically, maintaining that the language used against them sounded like that of an opponent.
The Azimio top brass, however, called upon their supporters not to lose hope in their struggle for democracy.
