Politics and Society Cartoon: Kenya faces further political uncertainty with possibility of lengthy legal battle

Kenya’s Supreme Court will once again be the centre of a likely lengthy legal battle following the recent re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta with opposition leader Raila Odinga refusing to accept the result. In his victory speech President Kenyatta who was declared winner of the poll with 98 percent of the vote said he expects his re-election to be challenged in the courts. The country remains in a precarious situation as it remains uncertain how the political crisis will unfold and if will be peacefully resolved.
