Thirdway alliance has openly welcomed the Supreme Court’s ruling that the presidential election should be done afresh.
Addressing the press on Sunday, Ekuru Aukot castigated president Uhuru’s scathing attack on the judiciary especially on chief justice David Maraga for the ruling.

He also called for auditing of the Kenya integrated election management system (KIEMS).
