Supreme Court verdict on presidential petition faulted

06 September 2013, 09:52

Mombasa - Law scholars and practitioners from East African countries have faulted the Supreme Court’s ruling on the presidential petition that challenged President Kenyatta’s election.

According to the critics, law students cannot learn from the ruling since it failed to establish any jurisprudence, adding that it also set a bad example for other courts in Commonwealth countries, The Standard reports.

However, Chief Justice Willy Mutunga, did not turn up to the meeting being held in Mombasa to defend the ruling. He instead sent a judge to represent him.

This comes as one of the Supreme Court judges, Judge Mohamed Ibrahim, proposed some constitutional amendment to give the court more time to rule on future presidential petitions, from 14 to 45 days, saying that the petition could have been handled differently if the court could have had more time.
