"The court has spoken. I respect but disagree with the findings," Karua added.
William Ruto was officially sworn in as the fifth President of the Republic of Kenya on Monday by the Kenyan Supreme Court.
This came after the judges of the supreme court reached a unanimity in their verdict regarding Raila Odinga's petition challenging William Ruto's victory. President-elect Ruto will now be sworn in.
The Supreme Court of Kenya on Monday confirmed William Ruto as the real fifth President of the Republic of Kenya.
The Supreme Court of Kenya on Monday confirmed the election of William Ruto as the fifth President of the Republic of Kenya.
Reading the verdict on Monday, Chief Justice Martha Koome said Ruto garnered 50 percent plus one votes cast.
Ruto had garnered 7.1m while Raila Odinga garnered 6.9m as declared by the IEBC.
But the petitioners claimed that Ruto had not attained 50 percent plus one votes cast.
"It is not mathematical sound and that the rounding off of IEBC was correct. The petitioners did not offer a water tight case," Koome said.
Koome said rejected votes cannot be taken into account when calculating whether a presidential candidate attained 50%+1 of the votes cast in accordance with Article 138 (4) of the constitution.
She further said there was no evidence of discrepancies in the some of the nine issues raised by the petitioners.
On whether there was interference with uploading and transmission of forms 34A from polling stations, Koome said there was not evidence.
"There were no significant differences captured between the Forms 34A uploaded on the public portal and the physical Forms 34A delivered to Bomas that would have affected the overall outcome of the presidential election," the CJ ruled.
On whether postponement of gubernatorial elections resulted in voter suppression to the detriment of the petitioners, Koome said they were postponed due to 'genuine' mistakes.
