Mixed Reaction As The International Media Wrote About Kenyans Elections Ahead Of SCOK Ruling

The quiet of the world media on Kenya's general elections has finally ended. Following a three-day hearing session at the Supreme Court of Kenya, the judges' final decision is expected to be announced on Monday.

William Ruto was named the winner of the recently held elections by IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati on August 9. In an effort to have Ruto's victory for president overturned, Raila Odinga and the entire Azimio team filed a lawsuit. The Azimio team had maintained that the IEBC system had been hacked and votes were manipulated in favor of William Ruto. Raila Odinga had earlier declared that the results announced by Wafula Chebukati were invalid.

International Media The New York Times says Kenya has one of the most transparent election systems in Africa. The outcome of the election has been mired in a storm of rigging allegations and conspiracy theories. Kenyans have expressed various controversies as they highlight that the election was not transparent. But since a victor was declared on August 15th, giving William Ruto a narrow margin over Raila Odinga, Kenya's election still hangs in the balance.
