Azimio La Umoja Coalition has filed objections to the petitions filed by outgoing  Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria and gospel  artist Reuben Kigame, seeking  to have their petitions struck out.

The coalition  in the application  seen  by Ghetto  Radio  said that petitions filed  by the Moses  Kuria  and the Kigame were not with the powers  of the authority  of the supreme.

They said that powers granted  to the apex  court  is to determine  an election  petition  and not to have the petition  filed dismissed.

Kigame had filed a petition seeking the dismissal of a petition that challenges the election of William Ruto as the fifth President, citing  that IEBC  was biased in the clearance  of the presidential  candidate since, he was denied  a chance  even after  meeting the requisite requirements.

On the flip side Moses Kuria cited in his petition  apex  court  should  dismiss  the petition  of the Azimio  la Umoja coalition.

He argued  that leaders  affiliated  to Azimio  endangered  lives of other leaders  present  during  declaration of results.

“The actions of Raila and Azimio through their agents amounted to breach of national security as the same caused fear and panic not only amongst the Petitioners and all the persons present at Bomas but also amongst Kenyans across the globe who were keenly following the process on television,” reads affidavit.

According to Kuria, Raila used his chief agent Saitabao Ole Kanchory and others to cause violence at the Bomas of Kenya Tallying Centre, hence hindering the IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati from executing his duty.

Speaking  to journalist,Fredick Okero said they are ready  to counter the electoral  body in  legal  battle  that scheduled  to commence  on Tuesday next weeks,adding  that  as per the legal requirement  that have summarised  the submission to 40 pages 

“We have sufficient  evidence, and all the written  submissions  that  we carried  in  truck are summarised  in 40 pages,” said Okero.

The lawyer  also slammed  the petition  of Moses  Kuria adding  petition filed by the former legislator was not within the jurisdiction of the supreme court.
