The Supreme Court Of Kenya has today granted the National Super Alliance (Nasa) coalition restricted access to selected IEBC data and devices that were used to conduct the August 8 General Election.

The seven judges of the court ruled that they had granted orders of access to the petitioner because once they understand how the systems work, the court will come to a fair decision.

Prior to the petition hearing, Nasa had repeatedly asked the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to give them access to their servers if they had nothing to hide.

Today's 'win' comes after the court agreed to admit as evidence, several documents that were filed past the constitutional deadline.

Further, in today's session, Nasa's lawyer, Dr. Otiende Amollo, who is also the MP-elect for Rarieda constituency, had his time when he made his submission.

He presented a graph, complete with a formula that they believe was used to calculate the election results in favor of the incumbent, Uhuru Kenyatta.

According to their IT expert, it was possible to predict the result of the election from the start to the end.

At the moment, Nasa coalition is doing well and they hope to maintain the same trend. It will be interesting to see the response that the respondents will have.

While supporters may be excited about it, this is just but the beginning and all signs show a bruising court battle ahead.

Each side hopes to convince the Supreme Court bench, without a reasonable doubt, that they should rule in their favor.
