KOT react to landmark Supreme Court ruling
Kenyans online expressed mixed reaction after the Supreme Court nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory in a decision delivered on Friday morning.
The judges who ruled in favor of the petitioner are Chief Justice David Maraga, his deputy Lady Justice Philomena Mwilu, Justice Smokin Wanjala and Justice Isaac Lenaola.
The decision means that Kenyans will now go back to the polls and elect a new leader in 60 days.
Here are some of their reactions on the court’s decision to going back to the ballot:
