BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,28TH FEB 2018-Mandera governor Ali Roba can now breath easy after the High Court on Wednesday upheld his election as governor.
While issuing the ruling, Justice Fred Ochieng ordered the petitioner Hassan Noor Hassan to pay costs amounting to not more than Sh10 million.
Ochieng stated that Roba and his deputy were validly elected and indicated that the errors and malpractices highlighted by the petitioner were not sufficient to warrant nullification.
The judge also said that the results declared by the Returning Officer reflected the will of the people of Mandera County.
