High Court has upheld Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua's win
Judge Muchelule Aggrey ruled that Wavinya Ndeti's petition lacked merit
The Machakos High Court has upheld the election of Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua.
Justice Muchelule Aggrey ruled in favour of Mutua, saying Wavinya Ndeti’s petition lacked merit.
“The petition lacks merit…the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) conducted a free, fair and credible election,” said Judge Muchelule.
Wavinya Ndeti was then ordered by the court to pay Sh10 million in costs.
She has previously claimed that Mutua’s election was stained with massive irregularities and that the IEBC wrongly declared Mutua the winner.
She also claimed that Governor Mutua used county resources to campaign for his re-election, thereby breaking election laws.
