The Supreme Court has rejected Raila Odinga’s application for a forensic audit of the IEBC Information Technology (IT) system.

The court ruled that Mr Odinga's application was time barred and could therefore not be allowed.

The judges also rejected a request by Katiba Institute to be enjoined in the suit as 'amicus curiae' (friend of the court).

The court ruled that the Institute had shown bias against the third and fourth respondents who are Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto.
