      The ordinary Kenyan seems to have learnt a great deal from the 2007 mal-handling of the election!What is sad is the seeming hoodwink by the IEBC who completely abused the trust Kenyans had risked in them.Yesterday,the Coalition of reforms and democracy (CORD) petitioned the Supreme Court on IEBC's declaration of M. Kenyatta as President elect.We await the rulling.
