Kenya: Two killed in protests after Supreme court verdict

Former presidential candidate for the National Super Aliance chief, Raila Odinga, on Monday, November 20, rejected the verdict by Supreme Court on the petitions challenging President Uhuru Kenyatta's last month victory.

Opposition chief, Raila Odinga boycotted the polls, saying that IEBC could not be trusted to hold free and fair elections. "This position has not been changed by the court ruling", Mr Odinga's adviser, Salim Lone, said in a statement.

It referred to security concerns raised by the opposition about the judges after one of their bodyguards was shot the day before the court was to deliberate on an 11th-hour request to delay last month's election.

Kenyatta won the elections with 7.48 million votes in 266 out of 291 constituencies where the election took place.

According to ESPN , the former wide receiver died early Monday after a single-vehicle rollover accident near Dallas. One of my favorite memories came when we hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers in the divisional playoff game.

The country's apex court had stunned Kenya and much of the continent on September 1, after it invalidated Kenyatta's win on the grounds of irregularities, forcing the election to be re-held.

He vowed to push on with his quest to end electoral injustices, even as preparations for the swearing-in of President Kenyatta for a second term resumed at the Safaricom Stadium in Kasarani.

The opposition strategy is built around a National Resistance Movement that hinges on the economic boycott and civil disobedience.

"The court has unanimously determined that the petitions are not merited".

The company launched the OnePlus 5 and the upgraded OnePlus 5T recently as their 2017 flagship model smartphones. The new update opted a staged roll out though, so it will take a few days to reach out to your smartphone.

"After the hearing the petitions we retired with only two days left to the deadline and it was impossible to write a full judgement". "As a outcome, the presidential election of 26th of October is hereby upheld".

The decision was met with applause in the courtroom from lawyers for the election commission and Kenyatta. "That was not an election and we will continue opposing him", says one resident of the opposition stronghold of Kisumu city, Wycliffe Onyango. Four people were also killed over the weekend, while an opposition lawmaker was shot in the leg during scuffles with the police.

Odinga put the death toll in violence since he returned to Nairobi on Friday from an overseas trip at 31.
