BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,2ND MARCH 2018-High court has nullified Embakasi east member of parliament Babu Owino’s Election.While issuing the ruling ,Justice Joseph Sergon agreed with the petitioner Francis Mureithi that it was difficult to know who won the race.This is because Mureithi, who lost the race stated in his petition that there were various sets of results contained in the forms.
Represented by his lawyer Ham Lagat, Mr Mureithi said the forms were not legible, making it difficult to determine whether the results in Forms 35A corresponded with those in Form 35B.
Addressing his supporters outside the court after the ruling,Owino has accused the executive for fighting him politically.”It is Uhuru Kenya and William Ruto who are behind this,but its ok,the people of Embakasi East decided to vote in their MP and they will do it again”.Owino said.
Owino also wondered how the judge can nullify his win even after the vote recount was conducted which he won. He has however stated that he is reday to go back to the ballot and he is confidence he will win.
Owino’s lawyer Edwin Sifuna who was present has said he will file an appeal against the decision which he termed as unfair.
