Victory for Nyatike MP Tom Odege as court throws out petition challenging his election

BY CORRESPONDENT,HOMA BAY,10TH JAN 2018– Nyatike Member of parliament  Tom Odege  has gotten reprieve after  a Homa Bay High Court dismissed petition challenging his victory.

While making the ruling Justice Joseph Karanja said that the  petitioner did not provide sufficient evidence to support his claims.

The case had been filed by Fredrick Ogenga who wanted the court nullify Mr Odege’s win but on Wednesday justice  Joseph Karanja ruled  that the errors cited did not grossly affect the outcome of the election.”The fact was demonstrated by the recount of votes in the disputed polling stations and was not even proved by the evidence presented by the petitioner and his witnesses even if the recount was to be extended to the polling stations not disputed,” said Justice Karanja.
