Nairobi - Raila Odinga, the leader of Kenyan opposition coalition party the National Super Alliance (NASA), has spoken out on the Supreme Court's ruling to uphold Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta's victory in the October 26 rerun presidential elections, Kenya's Daily Nation reports.

Odinga, in a statement issued through his adviser Salim Lone, said the ruling Jubilee government was illegitimate, adding that the Supreme Court decision was made under duress after it ruled that two petitions brought before it challenging the poll results had no case.

“We in Nasa had repeatedly declared before this Supreme Court ruling today that we consider this government to be illegitimate and do not recognise it,” he said.

“This position has not been changed by the court ruling, which did not come as a surprise. It was a decision taken under duress. We do not condemn the court, we sympathise with it.”
