Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua has asked the High court to nullify the August 8 General Election.

She has the application under a certificate of urgency at the High Court in Kerugoya.

Karua said the Presidential election was carried out simultaneously with five others and there is no way you can separate it for nullification and leave the others.

She said all lower courts are bound by the decision of the Supreme Court, which found irregularities in the presidential election.

Through lawyer Gitobu Imanyara, Karua urged the court to refer the matter to the Chief Justice to constitute a three-judge bench to hear her application. 

Karua said there is no need to hear her main application since the Supreme Court findings are binding to other seats. The application will be heard on September 18.
