Kenya's Supreme Court has nullified the result of the August 8 presidential election won by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

In a ruling issued on Friday, the court said the electoral board committed "irregularities and illegalities" during last month's vote, harming the integrity of the election.

The court ordered another presidential election to be held within 60 days.

"The declaration [of Kenyatta's win] is invalid, null and void," said Judge David Maraga, announcing the verdict of four out of the six judges.

No Kenya presidential election has ever been nullified.
Maraga saying the election commission "failed, neglected or refused to conduct the presidential election in a manner consistent with the dictates of the constitution".

A lawyer for Kenyatta, Ahmednasir Abdullahi, said the decision was "very political" and the election board had "done nothing wrong." But he said the decision had to be respected.
