Mandera North MP Maj. Rtd Bashir Abdullahi election has been upheld. Justice Hedwig Ong’udi sitting at the Milimani High Court dismissed the petition with costs.

The judge ruled that MP Abdullahi was validly elected and petitioner did not produce substantial evidence to annul the election.

He joins the long list of MPs whose elections have been upheld. Yesterday, the High Court in Nairobi upheld the election of Mandera Senator Mohammed Mahamud.

But Mandera voters have their eyes trained on the big decision Wednesday when a petition challenging the election of Governor Ali Roba will be decided at 9am at the Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi.
