“No basis upon which to interfere with the Court of Appeal decision,”read the rulling
The Court of Appeal had overturned the High Court’s decision that nullified Wambora’s 2017 election in August 2018.
The High Court had nullified the election of Wambora on February 22,2018 after a successful petition filed by former Senator Lenny Kivuti.
Wambora appealed the ruling on March 20,2018 and sought orders from the second highest court to strike off the petition.
In the High Court ruling, Justice William Musyoka said the results of the candidates were exaggerated thus his order for the recount.
