Justice Phillip Waki in his ruling noted that High Court’s Justice David Majanja did not make an error in upholding Nyong’o’s win.
He also denied Ranguma’s request for the scrutiny, recount and re-tallying of the votes, saying the polls were conducted in accordance with the law.
Mr Ranguma, who the High Court slapped with Sh5 million in costs following the dismissal of his case, wanted the Appellate Court to look into the court process his petition went through, including the decision of the court.
