Martha Karua challenges president Ruto victory at the East African court.

Azimio la Umoja Deputy Presidential candidate Martha Karua has filed a petition at the East African Court of Justice challenging the Supreme Court’s ruling on the 2022 general election petition.

In her application alongside Director at Muslims for Human Rights (Muhuri) Khelef Khalifa, Karua is seeking an alternative opinion on the grievances she raised against IEBC and President William Ruto at the Apex Court.

The two further argue that the Supreme Court failed them in their quest for a fair trial as the judges did not compel IEBC to supply all the information necessary to vindicate their rights.

In their submissions, Karua and Khalifa further allege that the Supreme Court refused to examine all the evidence presented before it, neglected to fully inquire into the technology applied while condoning IEBC’s cover-up in refusing to grant access to its technology critical to determining the matter fairly, in disregard of its own orders.

this year’s ruling, the seven-bench of judges unanimously affirmed William Ruto’s victory rejecting opposition candidate Raila Odinga’s assertions that the electoral process was tainted by rigging.

The election, according to the judgment read by Chief Justice Martha Koome, was free, fair, transparent, and credible.

After three days of case hearing, a seven-judge court ruled that the eight petitions calling for the elections to be canceled were “without merit'

Martha karua had earlier indicated that they respect the decision of the supreme Court by they don't agree with their judgment.
