Azimio la Umoja Deputy President Candidate Martha Karua has filed a petition at the East African Court challenging the Supreme Court’s ruling on the 2022 general election petition.
In her application alongside Director at Muslims for Human Rights (MUHURI) Khelef Khalifa, Karua is seeking an alternative opinion on the grievances she raised against IEBC and President William Ruto at the Apex Court.
According to court files seen by Mwanzo, Karua and Khalifa are relying on the EACJ to argue that the actions and decisions of the two organs violated their rights.
“Their joint Reference claims that Kenya’s Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), failed to properly manage the August 2022 elections by ceding critical aspects of the process such as the electoral technology and results management to persons it had no control over,” a brief of the petition read.
The two further argue that the Supreme Court failed them in their quest for ‘justice’ as the judges did not compel IEBC to supply all the information necessary to vindicate their rights.
In their submissions, Karua and Khalifa further alleged that the Supreme Court refused to examine all the evidence presented before it, neglected to fully inquire into the technology applied while condoning IEBC’s cover-up in refusing to grant access to its technology critical to determining the matter fairly, in disregard of its own orders.
