She said the website will be uploaded with evidence on electoral malpractices Africog has gathered. It will also have views from Kenyans about the March 4th general election posted on the portal and will give Kenyans an open access to the evidence it used in the petition.
Africog believes citizen participation will make institutions accountable and will help uphold democracy and constitutionalism. The public will also use it as a forum for debate and opinion, celebrate their freedom of expression and even criticize or recommend the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) on how to conduct fair elections.
The People’s Court has been made possible by Africog’s Ms Gladwell Otieno and Zahid Rajad and Inform Action Director Mr Maina Kiai.
Speaking during the launch Africog’s Executive Director, Ms Otieno said: “This is not about individuals but the elections process. The website will open a public debate with the aim of strengthening our democracy.”
The Supreme Court is yet to release its detailed findings on what guided its ruling that upheld Uhuru Kenyatta as duly elected president of Kenya but Africog will be uploading a 900 page document detailing their evidence on the March 4 election malpractices.
