Kenya's Supreme Court on Saturday upheld the election of Uhuru Kenyatta as the country's next president, ending an election season that riveted the nation amid fears of a repeat of the 2007-08 post-election violence.
Saturday's verdict — following a drawn-out court case that raised tensions across the nation — means that Kenyatta will be sworn in as president early next month. He will become the second sitting president in Africa to face charges at the International Criminal Court. Kenyatta and Deputy President-elect William Ruto both face charges that they helped orchestrate the 2007-08 postelection violence in which more than 1,000 people died. Both deny the charges. Ruto's trial is set to begin in late May; Kenyatta's is to start in July. Kenyatta has promised to report to The Hague.

I’m personally glad the verdict came out as it did. In 2007 it was this same chap whose supporters were chanting ‘no Raila no peace,’ and I’ve always maintained that he should have been in the Hague. Now, he loses and again claims it was stolen from him ...even when, looking at the Senate as well as the Parliament seats, his party was badly beaten. Additionally, he lost by over 800, 000 votes in the presidential election. Yet he claims it was ‘stolen.’ Unfortunately for him, the suoreme court ruled unanimously against him. Well, Raila can go back to supporting Obama. I’m sure the verdict meet anger Obama to no end since the two were linked in the 2007 Kenyan election.
No probelm, Odinga will unleash the hounds of hell like he did in 2007 with the backing of Barack Obama II.
How many troops do we have in Kenya now??
I THOUGHT THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT OUR ELECTION.
The real question is what does the Kenyan supreme court have to say about America’s last two elections.
