Nairobi - Daily Nation reports lawyers have disagreed with the decision by the Supreme Court to reject an affidavit with evidence of alleged electoral malpractices in the election petition that was challenging the victory of President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta.
According to Law Society of Kenya (LSK) chairman Eric Mutua, the decision by the highest court in the land to reject the affidavit on the grounds that it was time-barred will undermine reforms in the Judiciary.
He said the Supreme Court should have considered the affidavit on its own merits instead of rejecting it on technicalities.
