"Hot air" Karua responds after the Supreme Court released the full Presidential petition judgement

Martha Karua, the deputy party leader of the Azimio la Umoja la One Kenya Coalition, attacked the Supreme Court after it made its final ruling on the presidential election case. In a comprehensive decision handed down on Monday, September 26, the seven Supreme Court justices made several recommendations to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC). The commission will be able to run elections more effectively in the future thanks to these suggestions.

The Azimio party's Raila Odinga and other petitioners sought to have William Ruto's victory in the general election of August 9 declared invalid. The seven-judge panel, led by Chief Justice Martha Koome, recommended the following actions to the electoral commission:

1. According to Parliament, the legal and regulatory framework governing the distinct policy and administrative responsibilities of the IEBC should be strengthened.

2. The IEBC should put in place official internal regulations that outline the chairperson's and commissioners' obligations for oversight, strategy, and policy.

3. The responsibilities of the chairperson, commissioners, chief executive officer, other employees, and third parties should be spelled out in detail in both legislative and administrative orders.

4. During the election, the servers that support the transmission and storage of Forms 34A, 34B, and 34C should only be accessible by IEBC personnel.

5. The IEBC must ensure that the servers assisting with the elections are separate from those assisting with their own internal administrative tasks.

6. The IEBC may consider simplifying Form 34A and adding a column to account for misplaced ballots.

7. It might also consider only having one part for the total number of valid votes. In accordance with the judgement of this Court, the independent body may also decide that it is prudent to provide its Returning Officers with comprehensive training on what constitutes a legitimate vote. Karua, on the other hand, derided the judges' recommendations as "hot air" and mocked them. Kenyans slammed Karua for the remark on social media after it was made, stating that since the elections were a success, she ought to move on and get better.
