National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate Raila Odinga has said they will pursue prosecution of electoral commission officials, following the termination of the August 8 presidential election by the Supreme Court.
Odinga, who spoke after the verdict on a petition he jointly filed with his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka, said he had no faith in the Commission as currently constituted and that they could not trust the poll agency with the mandate to hold fresh presidential elections within 60 days as directed by the court.

“We’ve got not faith in the electoral commission as currently constituted. They have committed criminal acts; most of them actually belong to the jail and therefore we shall ask for prosecution,” the NASA leader said on Friday.
Making history worldwide, The Supreme Court earlier today quashed President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election, ordering for a fresh presidential election in 60 days.
The court stated that IEBC did not conduct free and fair elections but cleared Kenyatta of any malpractice.
They also stated that the irregularities experienced affected the final outcome of the election.
Out of the 7 judges, 2 (Justice Jackton Ojwang’ and Njoki Ndung’u) gave dissenting views saying the election was free and fair.
Chief Justice David Maraga, however, stated that what they read was a ‘determination of the court and not a ruling’.
Maraga stated that the election of President Uhuru Kenyatta is null and void and he was not validly elected.
