Kenya’s election drama continues. The country is scheduled to hold its new presidential poll on October 17, but there is already talk of postponement due to technical issues and arguments over the electoral commission. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court, which annulled the results of last month’s vote, has come under fresh fire from ruling party supporters.

Police fired tear gas Tuesday to disperse ruling Jubilee party protesters demonstrating outside the Supreme Court, demanding the removal of two justices. The protesters say the justices met with opposition attorneys before the Supreme Court overturned the victory of their candidate, Uhuru Kenyatta, in the August 8 presidential election.

Chief Justice Maraga spoke to reporters, saying the court will not be intimidated.

“The judiciary, as currently constituted, cannot and shall not guarantee a particular outcome to any individual. We call upon Kenyans of good will to stand up for the independence of the judiciary and the rule of law. On our part, we are prepared to pay the ultimate price, to protect the constitution and the rule of law,” Maraga said.

The chief justice announced on September 1 that a new poll should take place within 60 days, due to what he called “irregularities and illegalities” by the electoral commission in the transmission of election results.
