  1. Petitions are welcomed because through them justice is made. One most test that Judges go through is being fair and unprejudiced in resolving disputes. The court must look and scrutinize the hearing basing on the entire electoral processes which begun a year before when the EC published the roadmap. All issues that transpired are key factors to the influence of either free dispensation or unleveled political grounds where one just predicts the outcomes. Where adjudication is based on the merely counted votes cast, it leaves a big gap in the road to political freedom, transparency, competency, accountability and justice. If previous Case Law is a benchmark to the 2021 case lodged, everyone has already predicted.
    I appeal to the Judges to pass better cases so that the lawyers in the making are given a picture they deserve.
