The Kenyan Supreme Court explained that it had made its decision last month to invalidate the results of the country's presidential election because the voting may have been hacked. It also said that Kenya's electoral commission did not do due diligence to validate results before they announced them.
“The Supreme Court criticized the electoral commission’s handling of the election, and the lack of faith that it instilled in the citizenry, as opposed to flat-out arguing that the overall outcome — whether Uhuru ‘won’ — was in doubt,” said Hassan. “In that way, this is a great step for Kenya. The judiciary is showing its might against the once all-powerful executive.”
