Election results were not falsified to favour Mombasa Governor Hassan Ali Joho during the August 8 General Election, a witness has said.

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Returning Officer Nancy Kariuki yesterday told Justice Lydia Achode that she did not falsify the results as claimed by former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar Hassan.

The witness told the court that the election of Mombasa governor was the most credible in the country because there were no malpractices as alleged by Omar.

Hearing continues.
