Kenya’s Chief Justice has said the Supreme Court is unable to hear a petition calling for a delay in Thursday‘s presidential re-run.
David Maraga said not enough of the court’s seven judges were available to hear the case. The deputy chief justice was not available after her bodyguard was shot by gunmen on Tuesday.
The BBC’s Alastair Leithead in Nairobi says the election is now expected to go ahead as planned.
The Supreme Court annulled the original election in August, saying there had been “irregularities and illegalities”.
