Jubilee has filed contempt of court proceedings against NASA leader Raila Odinga for pulling out of the 26th October fresh presidential elections.
Jubilee argues that the actions by Raila and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka amount to contempt of court and seriously imperil the efficacy and integrity of the orders of the Supreme Court.
Jubilee argues that he petitioners in totality have conducted themselves maliciously, without any regard for the rule of law and sanctity of judicial process.
“The rule of law in this country, in a perverse sense, has been imperilled by the Raila and Kalonzo on the basis the Supreme Court judgment,” argues Jubilee.
Jubilee says that the two, in totality have conducted themselves maliciously, without any regard for the rule of law and sanctity of judicial process.
He further says that on 18 October Raila Odinga, MusaliaMudavadi, Moses Wetangula, James Orengo in a public rally in Nairobi said there will be no elections on October 26 and instead there would be countrywide demonstrations.
Jubilee says that the utterances, threats and accompanying violence are ill-conceived acts of bad faith by persons seeking public office and who are bound by among others, the national values under Article 10 of the Constitution.
“The Petitioners’ actions amount to contempt of court and seriously imperil the efficacy and integrity of the orders of Court,” says jubilee.
Jubilee alleges that petitioners by themselves and through their agents including Members of Parliament under their directions are engaging in making obnoxious threats and use of insolent language against the IEBC and have vowed to scuttle all preparations geared towards ensuring that the elections are held within 60 days as directed by this Honourable Court.
They add that despite being the ones who sought these orders, the Petitioners thereafter embarked on a calculated scheme in order to ensure that the fresh elections set for 26th October 2017 do not take place.
