Details On Karua's Petition at East African Court of Justice over Ruto Win.

Khelif Khalifa, an activist, and Martha Karua, the vice presidential candidate for the Azimio party, have filed an appeal with the East African Court of Justice regarding the Supreme Court's ruling on the presidential petition.

In a brief submitted to the court, they assert that the actions of the IEBC and the Supreme Court during the presidential election of 2022 endangered democracy and the rule of law.

The two parties assert that the conduct and decisions of the two organs infringed on their constitutional rights.

Before the EACJ's two-month deadline, Karua and Khalifa combined their petitions into a single reference. This weekend is the deadline.

The two claim that the electoral commission managed the August 9 election improperly.

They assert that the IEBC failed to maintain a complete and accurate voter list and neglected to register eligible voters.

Khalif and the leader of Narc Kenya testified in court that the IEBC permitted unauthorized access to, deletion of, and uploading of election results.

They assert that the incompetent electoral management agency did not investigate or respond to complaints.

When they submitted their presidential petition, they also accused the Supreme Court of denying them a fair hearing and blocking their access to justice.

According to the cited source, the courts did not order IEBC to produce the essential information to preserve their rights.

They assert that the Supreme Court ignored some of the given material and failed to investigate IEBC's technology adequately.

Karua and Khalifa also allege that the Supreme Court sanctioned the IEBC cover-up by defying its own instructions and refusing to allow access to the technology essential for a fair adjudication of the case.

In addition, the Supreme Court registrar has been accused of neglecting, omitting, or refusing to provide "a true and thorough explanation of the results of the restricted examination that had been permitted" in the reference.

They have also questioned the Supreme Court's decision to determine that Wafula Chebukati, chairman of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, fraudulently handled the election but not to condemn him.
