Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior has given his early breakdown of the Supreme Court full judgment, predicting a possible jail term for two of the IEBC officials Wafula Chebukati and Ezra Chiloba for contempt of court and violation of the Election offence act.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court judges gave a detailed account on their decision to annul the August 8 presidential elections.

In their delivery of the judgment, the Supreme Court said they held the IEBC chairman Mr Chebukati responsible for failure to explain why poll results were not transmitted in the prescribed manner.

They also castigated the IEBC for defying an order to open its systems for scrutiny something that would have helped debunk Nasa claims that it was hacked.

Last week the Director of Public Prosecution, Keriako Tobiko, asked the Kura Yangu Sauti Yangu lobby to wait for the detailed judgment of the Supreme Court before he can initiate investigations against officers of the electoral body.

Mr Tobiko was responding to the lobby’s petition that he investigate and prosecute certain officers of the IEBC for the illegalities and irregularities noted by the Supreme Court in the summarised determination of the presidential election petition.
