Supreme Court of Kenya is yet to give exact time it will deliver its judgment on the presidential election petition set for today.

The Judiciary on Twitter says it will inform Kenyans on the exact time once the judges issue a notice.

"Presidential petition: Immediately the Supreme Court indicates the time the judgment will be delivered, we shall post it here," Judiciary wrote on its official Twitter account.

Supreme Court concluded the hearing of the petition on Friday, September 2.

Security beefed up ahead of court ruling

Adequate security arrangements have been put in place ahead of the ruling.

National Police Service says the deployment, which varies from region to region, was determined by the security challenges anticipated, including celebrations that may turn chaotic.

Already, security officers, equipment and machinery across the country have been deployed

Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai, who has since been discharged from the hospital where he spent 12 days, is now back in the office, and is expected to oversee the arrangements.

“As the National Police Service, we have taken all the necessary steps and measures to enhance security in all parts of the country including all critical infrastructure. We further appeal to the public to remain vigilant and cooperate with the law enforcement and other security agencies,” police said.
