Deputy President William Ruto has unleashed vitriol against the Supreme Court, again, after it nullified Uhuru Kenyatta’s election victory.

The DP who spoke this past weekend at Uhuru Park, demanded for an apology from the Supreme Court judges who voted to subvert the will of the people.

According to Ruto, the court was used by conmen to overturn the will of 15 million Kenyans in country’s biggest act of deceit and trickery.

President Kenyatta’s number two went on to reveal that they were now closely watching the Supreme Court after their August 11 decision.

“The supreme Court was used by conmen. They conspired through treachery, conmanship and deceit to overturn the will of 15 million Kenyans. We are watching you my friends,” he said.

Adding: “You should come to your senses and apologise for this great evil you have done unto Kenyan.”

Four Supreme Court judges agreed with Raila Odinga’s petition that the August 8 poll was marred with massive irregularities, so much that it affected the integrity of the whole exercise.

It went on to annul Uhuru’s win and ordered repeat election in sixty days.
