Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo has said that Chief Justice David Maraga was awarded for annulling President Uhuru Kenyatta’s August 8 victory.
Amollo who was part of the team that challenged President Uhuru’s victory, speaking on KTN’s Pointblank programme on Wednesday praised the unprecedented ruling terming it ‘courageous and unforeseen’.
As a result, Amollo said, Maraga was given a top award in Tanzania for his boldness in going against the president to stand with the law.
“The Supreme court did what few courts have had the courage to do. That is why Chief Justice David Maraga was given a standing ovation at the Word’s Chief Justice Conference in Tanzania,” Amollo said.
Raila who had accused the poll body of conspiring with President Uhuru Kenyatta to rig him out, however, boycotted the October 26 rerun, citing another plot to rig him out.
