The 8th of August 2017 election was conducted in an illegal and irregular way. That is why it was annuled. By saying that it was annuled because there were 'llegalities' and 'irregulaties', we make them look trivial. We make it look as if it was annulled because of 'technicalities'. It is just a matter of semantics, of course. But it makes a difference. Granted, the words 'illegalities and irregularities' came from the Supreme Court itself. Perhaps the court should have used different language. It should have said that the election was conducted in 'an illegal and irregular way'. That would have captured the gravity of the situation. When we say that there were 'irregularities and illegalities', Jubilee people are bound to get aggrieved. They get the impression that their 'victory' was annulled on technicalities. Yet reading the reasoned judgment, you realize that, indeed, the election may have been conducted in an illegal and irregular way. And that may be it had to fall. Perhaps because of internal sabotage.
