BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,17TH AUG 2018-Starehe MP Charles Kanyi Njagua is a happy man after court of appeal upheld his election.

The opposite is true however for  ODM’s Steve Mbogo who had filed the appeal after  Judge Agnes Murgor  dismissed his appeal.Mgogo filed the appeal saying he had  been dissatisfied with the judgement of High Court Justice Fred Ochieng’ in February.

The Court of Appeal agreed with Justice Ochieng’s finding that Mbogo did not provide sufficient evidence to support his claims that the election was marred by irregularities.

MINOR ISSUE

Futher Lady Justice Murgor ruled that failure by the Returning Officer to sign off Forms 35 A was a minor issue and did not have any impact on the results of the election.

It is not clear whether Mbogo will be heading to  court to challenge the ruling once again.
