Nairobi - Chief Justice Willy Mutunga has said that he does not regret the Supreme Court’s judgment that upheld the election of Uhuru Kenyatta in the disputed March 4 election.
Mutunga however said there should be an alternative political mechanism that would help resolve election disputes and save the image of the judiciary.
Though Mutunga applauded the judiciary for solving election disputes in a commendable manner, he said that it is impossible to convince election losers that the dispute resolution process was done in a fair manner.
According to Daily Nation, Mutunga’s remarks were in response to the LSK who had expressed dissatisfaction with the way the court handled the presidential election petition filed by Raila Odinga against Uhuru Kenyatta after the disputed March 4 polls.
Mutunga was speaking Friday during the launch of the Handbook on Election Disputes in Kenya in Nairobi.
