Kenyan Supreme Court confirms election result after fraud allegations are quashed

Kenya’s Supreme Court on Monday ruled that Deputy President William Ruto was properly elected president in the election last month.

The court dismissed several petitions seeking to annul the result of the Aug. 9 election put forward by opposition candidate Raila Odinga and his supporters. The ruling paves the way for Ruto to assume the presidency.
