Kenya election: Raila Odinga challenges William Ruto win in Supreme Court
Raila Odinga, who came second in Kenya’s presidential election, has gone to court to challenge the result, describing it as “fraudulent”.
In a scathing 70-page legal argument, he alleges there was a pre-planned effort to alter the outcome.
According to the electoral commission, Mr Odinga took 48.8% of the vote, losing to William Ruto’s 50.5%.
An independent monitoring organisation said the commission’s final result was in line with its own projection.
However, four of the seven electoral commissioners refused to endorse the outcome, alleging that the way the final results were tallied was “opaque”.
The seven judges at the Supreme Court will have 14 days to make a ruling.
