Full ruling of the court


Can be found here

Meanwhile, I hear the clown in chief has gone off the rails again. The prince can’t believe he can be defied by a court of law.

My lawyer friends, Sirius B, I am looking at you, when you have time, give a brief comment on the opinions and majority ruling.

If you are not a lawyer, don’t feel left out, I asked lawyers because they seem never able to agree on a singular matter, well just like architects not able to agree on whether a building has been well designed or well executed.

My brief comment for those friends of mine like Federrico and Brian who are old and maybe quite cynical, this is my opinion of the ruling and opinions.

1st dissenting opinion by Ojwang: We have always done it like this, we should keep doing it like this and maybe we can cure it in this manner. I hear, that was Scalia’s reasoning. Here is where those in the USA will be helpful

2nd dissenting opinion: I am here to defend Uhuru and IEBC, justice be damned. The majority ruling has set a high bar for conducting the elections and I am not the Chief Justice but I am Jack Bauer, Rambo, wonder woman and Superman so I scrutinized all the documents and they are genuine. The rest of you are blind.

Majority ruling: This country has worked hard to come to this point. Lives have been lost in coming up with this constitution. If it can’t be followed why have it. We shall rule again in the same way until you comply with the law.

And that, my friends, is the state of the nation.

  1. Yeah, corruption, blatant, open corruption, is the rule in government these days. Well, soon the orange idiot President we have here will nuke the Asian idiot ruler in North Korea and the world will be thrust into a nuclear apocalypse. We do have this to look forward to. 🙂

    Glad there’s a court somewhere that still believes in constitutional law and not just populist whims and twisted outdated morality.

    Even for lawyers, reading these hundreds of pages will be a considerable effort. The easily understandable core is the healthy republican (no capital R) spirit of the Judicial Branch rectifying Executive misconduct.

    Your comparison:

    reminds me of what Oscar Wilde says about artists in “The Picture of Dorian Gray”:

    +++Diversity of opinion about a work of art shows that the work is new, complex, and vital. When critics disagree, the artist is in accordance with himself.+++

    Cheers, Federico

    Congratulations on having a Supreme Court that follows the rule of the law. That isn’t always the case. Now the precedent has been set, hopefully, the guilty will see the proverbial “handwriting on the wall.” Naked hugs, my Kenyan brother!

  5. I read the majority opinion. I’m not going to read the dissents because they’re written by losers. That’s the technical legal term for justices who write dissents, for anyone who’s interested.

    With regards to the majority, I think your Supreme Court did a good job of requiring the IEBC to do its job while not stepping into the quagmire of election management itself. The Court passed on whether the irregularities would have cost Mr. Kenyatta the election, which is very important. All in all, this case might be the cornerstone of building the public’s trust in your elections.
