Court ousts Wambora as former Senator Kivuti says he will win by-election
A High Court sitting in Embu has today nullified the re-election of Governor Martin Nyaga Wambora as the Governor of Embu County in the August 2017 election. The court ruled that the reported irregularities in the said contest undermined the electoral process.
Speaking in Embu County, the petitioner; Hon Lenny Kivuti who is also the immediate former Senator of the county said he was happy with the court ruling. The former senator says the will of the people will be seen when he is elected in the by-election.
Meanwhile, Governor Wambora’s lawyers have said the judgement was unfair as there was not enough evidence before the court to nullify the election of Governor Wambora. They have indicated that they will appeal the ruling as soon as they have consulted with their client.
