The Nairobi High Court has upheld the election of Lang’ata MP Nixon Korir.
Petitioner Oscar Omoke who is also former Lang’ata MP has been ordered to pay Ksh. 5 million in costs.
Lady Justice Lucy Njuguna cited insufficient evidence as her reasons for failing to invalidate the MP’s win in the August 8 election.
“The petitioner failed to prove his allegations of election irregularities ranging from intimidation of his agents, misuse of public resources and alterations in forms 35A,” ruled Justice Njuguna on Tuesday.
Mr. Omoke, Korir’s competitor had moved to court in 2017 to challenge the MPs win citing massive irregularities and illegalities.
