Embakasi East Member of Parliament Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino has been upheld as the area member of parliament.

In the ruling, the court found no reason to to interfere with the Court of Appeal’s decision.

The Supreme Court of Kenya on Friday, January 18 affirmed the Court of Appeal’s decision to overturn High Court’s nullification of his win.

Jubilee’s Francis Mureithi wanted the election nullified saying it was marred with massive irregularities.

At the same court, Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip bounced back after his win had been nullified by the Court of Appeal.

Supreme Court Judge Justice Njoki Ndung’u ruled that Senator Anwar was elected according to the law and the burden of evidence should not have been shifted to him.

His win was being challenged by Hassan Albeity who contested the seat on a Wiper Democratic Movement ticket.

The Supreme Court has upheld the election of Marakwet East MP Kangogo Bowen.

The apex court ruled that the Court of Appeal did not err in upholding Kangogo Bowen as duly elected MP.

The judges also dismissed findings by High Court judge Kanyi Kimondo that two unregistered polling stations were used on voting day.

The court also ruled that Gatundu North Member of Parliament Anne Kibe was validly elected in the 2017 General Election.
