President Uhuru Kenyatta's win was nullified by the Supreme Court

Nandi residents have welcomed the ruling of the Supreme Court to go for fresh polls terming it as democratic and that African countries should learn from the example.

Speaking to West Media in Kapsabet town after the Supreme Court ruling, the residents said that Chief Justice David Maraga made the right decision by ordering for a fresh round instead of declaring the outright winner.

They confirmed that they are very much ready for the elections as the Court has given them another chance to exercise their democratic right be electing the leader of their choice.

Some of the residents didn’t approve the ruling, however, and said it’s a waste of time, and resources, given that they had already focused their minds on other matters like development. Jubilee supporters in the area┬árevealed that nothing will change their decision of electing President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The Supreme Court Judges, while making their ruling, declared that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) didn’t conduct fair elections and irregularities were sufficient to invalidate the presidential election results.

Following the ruling, Nandi leaders have urged the public to maintain calm and uphold tolerance.
