Bodyguard of Kenya's deputy chief justice shot

NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati and CEO Ezra Chiloba at Capitol Hill

The bodyguard was shot in the shoulder and his gun was taken as he was buying pots of flowers by the side of the road, Mohamed said.

Philomena Mwilu was part of a majority of Supreme Court judges who voted to annul the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta last month, following the initial August vote.

The government has declared Wednesday, October 25 a public holiday. In September, Chief Justice David Maraga said attempts to intimidate the Supreme Court judges after they nullified the August vote have been "unlawful and savage in nature".

The three petitioners, represented by lawyer Harun Ndubi, also want the court to interpret the meaning of Raila Odinga's withdrawal from the election.

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Sunday led the country in national prayers, calling on Kenyans to maintain peace ahead of the October 26 repeat presidential elections.

IEBC commissioners, they argue, are serving partisan interests and Chairman Wafula Chebukati has publicly admitted that he can not guarantee credible election. "We have not told people to protest on polling day".


Pkosing moved to court arguing that NASA leaders are seeking to secure power through a crisis, triggered by failure to hold the fresh presidential election within 60 days as directed by the Supreme Court.

One key case, brought by human rights activist Khelef Khalifa and two others, seeks to delay the vote on grounds that the election board is not sufficiently prepared.

The MP said he is apprehensive that there is political conspiracy to prevent the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), as presently established, from conducting the fresh presidential elections.

"To postpone the elections outside of the constitutionally mandated timelines would legitimize violation of the Constitution and disobedience of Court orders and may fatally injure our delicate democracy", they said in their opinion.
