'Angry' bees attack protesters, police outside Kenya's Supreme Court

'Angry' bees attack protesters, police outside Kenya's Supreme Court”

Kenya's electoral commission has moved the date for fresh presidential elections to October 26, as President Uhuru Kenyatta strongly criticized the court decision to hold new polls.

Police sealed off roads near Kenya's Supreme Court on Wednesday as judges prepared to deliver a detailed ruling laying out their reasons for annulling August presidential election.

The decision was reached after opposition candidate Raila Odinga had challenged the results in court, raising accusations of hacking and the making of a "computer generated leadership".

The court annulled President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election earlier this month saying there were irregularities and illegalities.

The company providing the voting system for the re-run of Kenya's presidential election says the equipment will not be ready in time, putting the planned date in jeopardy.

"The Supreme Court owes Kenyans an explanation how such a monstrous injustice took place", he said.

His comments came hours after protests erupted outside the Supreme Court building in Nairobi where supporters of the ruling Jubilee party had gathered to dispute the ruling.

The judges also said the election commission had failed to verify the numbers before declaring President Uhuru Kenyatta victor.

He also demanded to know why the trio misused his credentials as the National Returning Officer to delete forms submitted from the constituencies on account they were unclear or corrupt, without his knowledge or authorization.

Odinga, meanwhile, accuses officials of the electoral commission of stealing the vote and has called for them to be jailed.

All eyes are now on Nasa to see if they will drop their castigation on the officials even as the preparations for the fresh election continues.

The two arch-rivals were sharing a platform for the first time since the Supreme Court nullified President Kenyatta's win on September 1.

"We have no choice but to nullify it", she said. OT-Morpho, the French company which provided the controversial voter verification and transmissions technology, says it will need until October 26th at the earliest to set up the new servers, almost a fortnight later than the commission's proposed date of October 17th.

"Elections are not only about numbers", judge Mwilu said.

The judgement was given after NASA leader, Raila Odinga filed a petition against Mr. Kenyatta's election, arguing that process through which the transmission of presidential vote results was done did not conform with constitution.

In its full judgment, the court outlined "disturbing, if not startling, revelations" about the conduct of the IEBC in its management of the election.
