On Friday night, the Supreme Court ended hearings on the presidential petition. The verdict will be read out on Monday, September 5, and the nation is currently waiting in anticipation.
The main decision anticipated is either to declare the presidential election invalid or to uphold William Ruto's victory as Kenya's future president. Two days before the decision, Kenyans turned to internet polls to predict what the verdict might be based on their interpretation of the hearings.
More than 6,000 people participated in a survey on the National TV YouTube channel, and 75% of respondents said they thought William Ruto's victory would stand.
In accordance with the constitution, Ruto will be sworn in on Tuesday, September 13, if his victory is upheld.
If the election is overturned, the country will hold another election within 60 days. Now Kenyans are busy thinking and guessing who might win this case and be announced to be the next president.
