Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua's election was nullified
Petitioner Wavinya Ndeti's facial expressions in court during the ruling tells you all you need to know about how she was feeling
Nobody likes to lose.
Whether it’s a game of poker or an election, a loss can feel like an embarrassing stain that won’t come out.
But losing the battle may not expressly mean you will lose the war as Machakos governorship candidate Wavinya Ndeti recently proved.
When she lost in what she said was a flawed election, she took the fight to court.
After months of arguing the case, the hour of reckoning finally came and Ms Wavinya’s face kept changing as the judge pronounced the judgement.
When Alfred Mutua’s election as Machakos governor was nullified, Ms Wavinya, she of ‘yaloyi ndwele sipite’, showed signs of relief and joy.
