The Court of Appeal has nullified the election of Alfred Mutua as Machakos Governor.

Judge William Ouko said the IEBC’s declaration of Mutua as the winner of the August 2017 vote was not valid.

“The results as declared by the returning officer failed the constitutional test,” he said on Friday.

The appellate court set aside the judgement by the High court in the petition filed by Wiper’s Wavinya Ndeti.

Justice Ouko said the election was not  conducted fairly and directed the IEBC to conduct fresh polls.

The judges further ordered Mutua and IEBC to pay the costs of Wavinya’s appeal.

High Court sitting in Machakos on February  upheld the election of Mutua dismissing allegations made by Ndeti.
