The Supreme Court of Kenya will tomorrow conduct pretrial conference before kicking off the hearing of the presidential petitions that are before it.

High court advocate Shadrack Wambui says the pre-trial conference is very vital as it gives parties clear guidelines on how the whole hearing exercise will be conducted.

“We have about nine petitions by Monday all accused would have file their responses and the on Tuesday we shall have pretrial conference ..number of issues will be determined petitions will be classified  the court will then decide on the which direction to take. If that is completed in time then the hearing will kick off immediately,” Wambui said.

In his submissions, Odinga accused Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission of manipulating presidential result in favor of his competitor President Elect William Ruto and therefore subverting the people’s will.

“The petition is about the forces of democracy who are pushing for good governance against cartels of corruption, who can stop at nothing to ensure that they take the leadership of the country by all means. The 2022 election marks the most daring move by the cartels to overturn the wishes of the electorate,” said Mr Odinga.

Chebukati  has defended himself and in his submissions he  accused state machinery supporting Odinga of coercing him to declare Raila  the winner of August poll.

“Having heard the views of all the commissioners, l maintained that l wound not sit and discuss subversion of the will of the people, and that l will announce and declare final results in accordance with the verified tallies as verified and tallied by the commission,” Chebukati said.

The Supreme Court will deliver the ruling before Monday 5th next week.
