A petition to have the Supreme Court's ruling on the petition for the general election of 2022 reviewed by the East African Court of Justice has been filed by Martha Karua, a deputy presidential candidate for Azimio la Umoja.
In her appeal with Khelef Khalifa, the director of Muslims for Human Rights (MUHURI), Karua asks for a fresh perspective on the allegations she made to the Apex Court against the IEBC and President William Ruto.
According to court records that NTV was able to access, Karua and Khalifa are depending on the EACJ to support their argument that the actions and decisions made by the two organs violated their rights.
In their joint reference, they assert that Kenya's Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) bungled the elections in August 2022 by delegating important tasks, including as the deployment of electoral technology and results administration, to parties it had no control over.
The two further assert that the Supreme Court failed to maintain their right to a fair trial since the judges did not order IEBC to give all the evidence necessary to protect their constitutional rights.
Karua and Khalifa further said in their pleadings that the Supreme Court ignored all of the evidence presented to it, refused to fully investigate the technology used, and supported IEBC's cover-up by denying access to its tools.
