‘Canaan’ dream revived for Nasa supporters
There is finally light at the end of the tunnel for ‘Canaan-bound’ Kenyans after the Supreme Court ruled in favour Raila Odinga in the presidential election petition.
The ruling that was delivered on Friday morning nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory meaning that Kenyans will go back to the ballot in 60 days.
The decision came as good news for Nasa supporters, who during the campaign trail likened their journey to victory to that of the Israelites in the Bible from bondage in Egypt to the Promised Land.
Netizens camped on social media to express their sentiments:
I’m running mad I can’t believe this. Canaan journey is on. #SupremeCourtDecides
