The high Court in Kisumu on Wednesday 3rd January dismissed a petition challenging the election of Kisumu Governor Anyang Nyong’o.

In his ruling, High Court Judge David Majanja quashed the petition filed by former Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma saying there was no sufficient evidence to demonstrate claims of Ballot stuffing and use of booklets in the August 8, 2017 general election.

In his petition, Ranguma accused the electoral body, IEBC, of lack of impartiality, accountability, and transparency in managing the election and a flawed declaration on the part of the Returning officer.
