The Supreme Court in Kenya has annulled the result of the last month’s presidential election.
Citing irregularities, Chief Justice David Maraga said a new vote should be held within 60 days.
Justice Maraga said the 8 August poll had not been “conducted in accordance with the constitution”.
The election commission had declared incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta the winner of the election by a margin of 1.4 million votes.
But Raila Odinga, leader of the opposition National Super Alliance party, declared the election a sham, with claims that the commission’s IT system had been hacked to manipulate the results.
Kenya becomes the first country in Africa to annul presidential election.
