“We are ready for elections but we don’t have confidence” in the electoral commission (IEBC), he added.

“Those commissioners must go,” said Odinga. “Most of them belong in jail.”

The court pronounced that the Presidential election be nullified while a fresh election be conducted within the next 60 days.
