The Supreme Court regustry at Forodha House, Milimani Law Court played host to the pretrial conference for the presidential elections petition seeking to reverse declaration of Dr William Samoei Ruto as president elect.
During the conference, Dr Ruto's lead lawyer Fred Ngatia complained on the constraints of time allocated for his team of four lawyers in response to the other petitioners cumulative time of eight hours.
The senior counsel noted that the time given of three hours to his team was not enough for him to satisfactorily respond to all the points reaised by the petitioners, a fact he said, was not just or fair to his client.
As a result of that, Prof Tom Ojienda who is alligned to Raila Odinga responded by telling the Dr Ruto team that if they deemed the petition to be too many for them to handle, they had another option of advicing their client to concede.
In a video published by Citizen TV, Prof Ojienda who is also the senator elect of Kisumu county said that the president elect should concede to Azimio's Raila Odinga if he felt the petions were so many and agaist time provided.
