THE SECOND AMENDMENT TO THE 2010 CONSTITUTION…

At this point you cannot envy Justice Maranga’s position. This is after the veteran opposition leader Raila Odinga filed the case against the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday 18th August 2017 as per Article 140 (1) which states that “A person may file a petition in the Supreme Court to challenge the election of the President-elect within seven days after the date of the declaration of the results of the presidential election,” of the Constitution states. The Supreme Court has 14 days to hear and determine the petition. As per the Kenyan 2010 constitution these strict timelines includes Saturday and Sundays. With this in mind the Supreme Court will be forced to work over the weekends.
