Kenya's Supreme Court will make a decision Monday on a lawsuit that wants to overturn the results of last month's presidential election

and has left the East African country in political limbo. Raila Odinga, the leader of the opposition, failed to win the presidency on his fifth try.

He and six other parties asked the court to overturn William Ruto's win, saying that the August 9 vote was not fair because of a lot of mistakes.

The official results showed that 50.5% of people voted for Ruto and 48.8% voted for Odinga.

The head of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, Wafula Chebukati, defended the fairness of the election.

However, four of the other six members of the commission disagreed with him, saying that the count wasn't clear.

A group of 5,000 local observers said that the results matched what they had counted. 

In the past, there have been several election disputes in Kenya that turned violent. The worst of these was in 2017 and killed at least 1,100 people.

Even though the election process has been mostly peaceful so far, investors are keeping a close eye out for any signs of trouble. 

The decision of the court can't be changed. If it throws out the vote, like it did in 2017, new ones have to be held within 60 days.
