Win For Governors Nyong’o, Waiguru as Court Throws Out Petitions Against Them

High Court has for the second time dismissed NARC-Kenya Martha Karua’s petition against Governor Ann Waiguru.

Justice Lucy Gitari said that the governor was elected in a free and fair manner.

Justice Gitari had dismissed the case on November 15, 2017 because it was ‘hopeless, defective and incurable’ prompting Karua to move to the Court of Appeal.

But the case took a new turn after Karua claimed that video evidence on voter bribery got lost after being filed in court.

The Court of Appeal has also dismissed a petition by Jack Ranguma against |Kisumu Governor Prof Anyang’ Nyong’o citing lack of merit in the case.

 

Ranguma, the former Kisumu governor, lost to Prof. Nyong’o in the 2017 Kisumu Gubernatorial race and moved to the High Court.

Dissatisfied with the decision, Ranguma moved to the Court of Appeal to seek redress.

The appeal judge observed that after examining the petition, there was no specific nature of electoral fraud committed by the respondents.

Ranguma also accused Justice David Majanja, who dismissed the case, of making errors by disregarding witness statements.
