The ruling makes Kenya the first African country to have a presidential poll invalidated by a court.

The election commission had declared incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta the winner by a margin of 1.4 million votes.

But the opposition argued that the commission’s IT system had been hacked to manipulate the results.
