No, because voiding an election on the basis that transmission of ALREADY DECLARED results was not just nonsensical, especially considering ALL party agents had concurred with the outcome at constituency level, the legal threshold for presidential results, before transmitting to national tallying centre.
That ruling was not just incompetent, reckless and stupid, it was extremely dangerous. Can you imagine if it was Raila who had won and then the same judges had ruled for a repeat?? Would we be talking here today or would parts of the country be burning, maybe even the whole country??
This is the context in which this should be viewed by those like you who seem to naively think this is just a purely legal matter. It is not, it is 150% political, and it is to Jubilee supporters credit, maturity, great patience and patriotism that the country did not explode.
The correct decision would have been for the judges to order a recount of VALID votes, full stop! The circus we now have would have been avoided. For putting the stability of this country in great danger in an effort to appease Raila and to 'redeem themselves', these 4 cowardly fools should be hanged, or at the very least removed from their jobs.
I am happy that Uhuru repeated today at SH as he met Kamba leaders that he is not letting this treasonous matter go and will revisit it soon after the election. It's great to see Uhuru STILL pissed off this long....that's the spirit.

Judges should and must be criticised when they are incompetent or corrupt, and in this instance, the 4 judges were utterly incompetent in making a political ruling. I notice that those complaining about the attacks on the Maraga 4 have nothing to say about Justice Ojwang's scathing dissenting remarks in disagreeing with his colleagues on the SC bench?
True but what makes it 'political'? The fact that it never went your way?
