Jubilee bloggers remain bullish in wake of petition ruling

By DAVID KWALIMWA September 1st, 2017 1 min read

Jubilee bloggers have remained bullish despite a historic decision by the Supreme Court to nullify President Uhuru Kenyatta’s election victory.

In arriving at this ruling, Chief Justice David Maraga among other, declared that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) failed to conduct the exercise in compliance with the constitutional provisions.

Consequently, the court declared the country to go back to the polls in 60 days.

But this decision by the Supreme Court appears not to have deterred supporters of President Kenyatta.

Dennis Itumbi, who is also the Senior Director of Innovation, Digital and Diaspora Communication in the Office of the President simply said:

Pauline Njoroge, who is known for her strong leaning towards the Jubilee Party, wrote on Facebook: “It’s okay. Let’s go back to the campaign. 60 days sio mingi (isn’t much). This is just a postponement of victory.”

Robert Alai, a one-time strong supporter of Nasa leader Raila Odinga also weighed in with his disagreement with the court ruling.

Another blogger Tsomnyanzi wa Nganga simply wrote: “Let’s go back to the ballot. This is our democracy and our constitutionalism.”
