Relieve for Governor Wambora as appeals court upholds his election

Governor Martin Wambora.

The Court of Appeal has upheld the election of Embu Governor Martin Wambora saying the process was valid.

The court set aside a February 22 judgment by High Court justice William Musyoka who nullified Wambora’s election on August 8, 2017.

It was said on Friday that Musyoka erred when he held that the election was not in line with the Constitution.

The appeals court further said the trial court dealt with issues that were not raised before it and that the minor irregularities that occurred during scrutiny did not warrant nullification of the results.

Wambora celebrated with his supporters after the ruling on Friday, saying he was happy and would focus on serving his people.

The High Court ruling followed a petition by former Senator Lenny Kivuti.
