Azimio la Umoja Deputy Presidential candidate Martha Karua welcomes the decision by the Supreme Court of Kenya even though she disagrees with the findings.
The statement by Karua follows a verdict delivered by the Apex court on land upholding the election of William Ruto as the fifth President of the country.
According to CJ Martha Koome, the court did not receive substantial evidence proving that the just concluded elections were filled with irregularities as alleged by the Azimio la Umoja camp.

Even though a team of lawyers presented a number of pieces of evidence before the court, the majority of them were termed forged or mere hearsay which does not provide grounds enough to dismiss the results.
IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati’s decision to declare the results in the absence of other commissions was declared unconstitutional but given the fact that the famous four commissioners participated in the exercise previously, it was evidence enough that they participated in the exercise at some point altogether.
The Court has however called on each party in the petition to bear their own expenses as they promised to issue a full detailed judgment in the next 21 days.
