The Supreme court of Kenya has denied IEBC chairman Wafula chebukati permission to amend or alter form 34A and 34B during the October 26 fresh presidential elections.

The IEBC chairman had filed a petition to seek clarification on what the court meant by the verification of results before declaration by the national returning officer for the presidential elections. He wanted the court to give a way forward on what he was supposed to do if he noted discrepancies on the forms.
