The Supreme Court of Kenya on Tuesday morning struck out a petition filed by Moses Kuria citing that it did not relate to challenging the election of DP William Ruto.
The verdict by the Supreme Court is among many set to be determined before hearing other petitions filled with them.
President-Elect William Ruto called on the Court to dismiss an application by the Law Society of Kenya to be enjoined in the hearing saying that Azimio Deputy Presidential candidate Martha Karua was a leader at one point and is still a member of the society.

The Deputy President also called for the petition by the four commissioners led by Deputy Chair of IEBC Juliana Cherera to be struck off citing that the Commission is one entity and should be represented as a whole.
Ruto through his legal team of 54 lawyers will seek to defend his election that has been challenged by Azimio Presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
IEBC on the other hand will defend the results leading to the declaration of DP William Ruto as the President-Elect. This follows allegations that their servers were hacked and Form 34A’s manipulated to favour Ruto.
