President elect William Ruto will be sworn in as the fifth President of Kenya after Chief Justice Martha Koome declared that he worn the August Polls. However, details emerge on how Ruto's lawyers managed to lure the court to dismiss Raila Odinga's case at the Supreme Court. Senior Counsel Fred Ngatia led William Ruto’s defense team at the Supreme Court in a bid to stop Raila Odinga from overturning Ruto's win. Fred Ngatia declared that the problem with elections is not how they are conducted but that some people have failed to “inculcate the culture of accepting defeat”. He further requested the Court to uphold Ruto's win to avoid creating a crisis in the country.
Moreover, he declared that Raila Odinga will not accept to go for fresh elections unless IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati is removed from office. Kithure Kindiki revealed that the chaos that happened at the Bomas of Kenya was meant to stall the process of announcing the winner of the presidential race.
