Supreme Court was Tuesday evening expected to rule on preliminary applications by lawyers seeking to have some documents expunged from court records, and also objecting to opposition coalition Nasa’s admission in the case.
President Uhuru Kenyatta and the electoral commission opposed an application by petitioners for scrutiny of materials used in the October 26 repeat presidential poll.
The two argued that the application by Njonjo Mue and Khelef Khalifa is prejudicial to them, a waste of judicial time and an abuse of court process.
