Kenya court: opposition didn't show presidential campaign used state resources

“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.
