>> Kenya Supreme Court has nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta's election win. Opposition leader Raila Odinga had filed the petition challenging the August result alleging fraud. He claimed the results for more than a third of polling stations were fatally floored. But Kenyatta was declared the winner of the presidential race by 1.4 million votes.
International observers had said the result was largely fair and the international community urged Odinga to concede defeat. But his coalition said the whole vote was rigged and that Kenyatta's ruling party had conspired with security forces to crush dissents. The result sparked violent protests across the country with several people killed.
In Friday's ruling, the Supreme Court said the electoral board had committed irregularities and illegalities during the vote. And that this harmed the integrity of the election that handed Kenya to a second five-year-term. Kenya must now hold another presidential election within 60 days.
