Plans to challenge President Uhuru Kenyatta's men who won seats in NASA strongholds and battle grounds in disputed August 8 poll are in top gear within the coalition after winning the Supreme Court presidential petition.

Raila Odinga's National Super Alliance team have assembled evidence and working on petitions to challenge the Jubilee lawmakers' win in several regions they believe results were tampered with during the electronic transmission process.

NASA chief executive officer Norman Magaya declined to single out specific areas they intend to petition when he spoke to Star on phone yesterday on grounds disclosing them would "jeopardize our legal strategy."

"We will mount election petitions in at least 62 electoral areas where winners were computer generated. We have solid evidence so far," Magaya said.

Homa Bay Town MP Peter Kaluma, however, revealed that Kisii, Nyamira, Bungoma, Trans Nzoia, Kakamega, Coast, North Eastern especially Mandera, Machakos and other Ukambani counties are NASA's target regions.

Kaluma was among Raila's lead lawyers in the Supreme Court presidential petition. Others included Siaya Senator James Orengo, Rarieda MP Otiende Amolo, among others.

Lawyers and political commentators said the Supreme Court verdict nullifying of President Uhuru Kenyatta's reelection citing irregularities and illegalities in transmitting results by IEBC opened a floodgate for aggrieved poll losers to challenge their rivals' win in court.

NASA has only this week to file the petition according to the elections laws which demand the filing done 28 days after the declaration of results.

"Individual petitions are already filed. Any lawyer who has filed a petition for a NASA client requires assistance, the coalition's legal team will be available. The legal team seen in Supreme Court was just the team leaders," Kaluma said.

He disclosed that a total of 71 lawyers worked on the presidential petition.

"So far the number has been increased and currently we are 208 lawyers_ all are on standby to step in if required to help in any petition. All petitions we intend to file will have been filed before the deadline," he said.

NASA has questioned and linked the "odd and strange" wins by Uhuru's governors in Meru, Bomet, Nairobi, Kwale, Marsabit, Kajiado, Narok, Wajir and Garissa to having been predetermined using a "computer generated formula" to secure victories.

Kaluma told Star their audit and scrutiny shows that the election results were not only predetermined in the presidential vote but also other elective seats in favor of Uhuru's JP.

"From the revelations and evidence we have, it will be right to petition and have those results reversed to uphold the sovereign will of people. We cannot allow our people to be led by a leader who is fraudulently computer generated," he said.

Uhuru, his deputy William Ruto and their JP leaders have insisted that they won the polls fairly from many governor, senate, National Assembly, women representative and county assembly seats they secured compared to NASA.

Jubilee won eight parliamentary seats in western_ four in Kakamega and Bungoma counties each and one in Trans Nzoia. Jubilee won several seats in Wiper leader and NASA deputy presidential candidate Kalonzo Musyoka Ukambani turf. Uhuru got two seats in Kitui and one in Machakos counties.

"The number of candidates from the governors, MPs and senators in identified areas are 108 as per now. Our team is already processing petition papers. The Supreme Court presidential petition verdict, being the apex court, is binding to all courts below it," Kaluma said.

CJ Maraga was right both from a moral and legal perspective.
You can not expect to have an election declared as valid when there were clear illegalities and irregularities.
Even 1 vote counts.So from a legal perspective it doesn't matter if Uhuru was ahead by 10 million.The constitution said that a certain threshold should be reached and in this election it clearly fell well below.
IEBC had the resources and time to deliver a scandal free elections and if they succeed in doing that then it will be to our benefit in so many ways.

That is an approach and school of thought which is idealistic. Mutunga was from a dufferent school of thought.

This is abuse of the judicial system.
Nasa knows the reason Jubilee won more seats has nothing to do with rigging, but because Nasa affiliated parties fielded competing candidates in some 'strongholds'.
They now want the courts to give them a second chance to rectify this. You can be sure if by-elections are called, they will be very careful to select on a single candidate.
It is true. We need a clean up at the Supreme Court.

Those 4 judges might have genuinely meant well for the country, but they lack the wisdom to hold such a high office. Low IQ is a very dangerous thing.

After 3 days IEBC declares Uhuru Kenyatta as the winner?
And that day is Oct 20?
And that day is Kenyatta Day?
