This was clearly defined in the 2010 constitution after he it was promulgated. This new constitution defined the independence of the Judiciary and the electron and boundaries commission that has, seen that elections have been fair since despite post election violence in every electioneering period.
After the 2017 general elections, election violence was heated after annulment of the election by the supreme court. The opposition went to a step of even swearing in Raila Odinga as the People's President. In May 2018, the opposition leader and the president at the foot of harambee house shook hands and declared end of 5year cycle violence evident after elections.
The handshake brought about the BBI bill that was to see to the amendment of the constitution. However, the bill was declared unconstitutional process by the the high court of Nairobi. This marked another history, a second landmark at the eve of Idd al-Fitr. The annulment of the presidential elections in 2017 was at the eve of Idd al-Adha.
