Former Rarieda MP Nicholas Gumbo now wants the High Court to order a scrutiny of election materials used in the governorship contest on August 8.

Mr Gumbo, who vied and lost to Governor Cornel Rasanga, argued that the election materials did not meet constitutional thresholds and laws governing elections.

Speaking at the High Court in Siaya as he presented evidence before Justice Esther Maina, the former lawmaker noted that most of the votes were counted in an opaque manner.

“My agents were not given an equal chance to verify the forms; as a result the irregular and unlawful counting of votes deprived me of my victory,” he argued.
