A seven-judge bench has begun hearing petitions seeking to overturn the election of William Ruto as Kenya’s president-elect.

Led by Chief Justice Martha Koome, the judges struck out two petitions and consolidated seven others because they raised similar issues and sought the same orders.

The court also rejected three applications including a request by Mr Ruto, who sought to bar the Law Society of Kenya from the case.

The court has set out nine issues of determination that will shape the final ruling set to be delivered on the 5th of next month.
