Laikipia Governor Ndiritu Muriithi’s 2017 election has been upheld once more.
The Supreme Court on Friday upheld his win and rejected his rival’s appeal on the Laikipia’s governor seat.
Sammy Ndung’u Waity, had petitioned Ndiritu Muriithi election arguing that he was not validly elected because he resigned late from Jubilee and therefore barred from contesting.
The judges said the appeal was just rehashing the case Mr Waity had lost at the Court of Appeal.
Justice Smokin Wanjala while reading the ruling said that ‘all pre-election disputes cannot be a matter for an election court if the electoral commission and the political parties dispute tribunal have handled it.’
