NAIROBI – Kenya’s chief justice said on Wednesday that the opposition did not provide sufficient evidence to show that President Uhuru Kenyatta broke the law by using state resources during his re-election campaign.

“In response to those allegations of … use of public resources … we are unable to deal with that in the absence of any evidence,” said Chief Justice David Maraga, as the court delivered a detailed ruling on last month’s annulled presidential elections.
