Karua moves to appeals court to challenge Waiguru win

- in News

Narc-Kenya leader Martha Karua has moved to the Court of Appeal for the second time to challenge High Court’s decision to uphold the election of Anne Waiguru as Kirinyaga governor.

Ms Karua, while declaring that her battle against Governor Waiguru’s election was not over, said Justice Lucy Gitari was biased in hearing the petition and the verdict to dismiss the case was a miscarriage of justice.

“The judge failed to adhere to the principles of a fair hearing as more particularly guaranteed by Article 50 of the Constitution. She exercised her judicial authority in total disregard of Article 159 of the constitution,” said Ms Karua outside the Court of Appeal registry in Nyeri.

She filed six bundles of document summarized in 31 grounds which she will use to convince the Appellate Court judges that Ms Waiguru was not validly elected.

Ms Karua is contending that Justice Gitari summarily excluded electronic evidence tendered by her witnesses in the petition.

She said some of the evidence was supplied to her by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
