This weekend, we will know something definitive about Kenya's political future.
The elections of August 8th left the bottom line of the appeal filed by the opposition before the Supreme Court, represented by the NASA alliance and its candidate premier Raila Odinga.

The Supreme Court, headed by Judge David Maraga, is looking through the more than 70,000 pages of the file presented by the opposition and hopes to be able to give a ruling by tomorrow.
Meanwhile, the re-elected President will not stop and tomorrow the opening ceremony of the new Parliament of Kenya will be held, with the appointments of the spokesmen of the House and Senate and the official investiture of the new elected parliamentarians.
The opposition, after meeting yesterday, decided to send their politicians to the inauguration anyway.
