BY CORRESPONDENT,MOMBASA,26TH JULY 2018-Nyali member of parliament Mohammed Ali can now breath easy after Court of Appeal in Mombasa On Thursday upheld his election .
The appellate court dismissed the petition filed by Mr Ali’s rival, Said Abdallah alias Saido of ODM, for lack of merit.
Mr Abdalla, the judge said, failed to give evidence to support his claims of voter bribery, intimidation and use of security officers to influence the election outcome.
“The appellant having failed to prove allegations of electoral malpractices, the court finds that the appeal is lacking in merit and dismiss it forthwith,” Justice Martha Koome ruled.
Justice Koome while issuing the ruling in the appeal said that the election was conducted according to the Constitution.
Mr Abdalla moved the Court of Appeal after the High Court dismissed his petition in February, also for lack of merit.
