    Many Kenyans have become fascinated by the judge who overturned President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election over vote fraud allegations. It is the first time in the country's history that an election petition has gone against a sitting president.

    The move by Chief Justice David Maraga and three of his colleagues was unexpected and unprecedented in Africa where governments often hold sway over the judiciary.

    Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports.
