The Court of Appeal has nullified Dr. Alfred Mutua’s election as Machakos County Governor. Machakos Gubanatorial aspirant in the 2017 elections, Wavinya Ndeti, appealed a High court ruling that upheld Mutua’s win.
The court has ordered IEBC to conduct fresh elections in accordance to the law ruling that the certificates they had issued be set aside
In February, Machakos High Court upheld Mutua’s election on basis of lack of merit in the petition brought to court by former Kathiani MP Wavinya Ndeti.
Mutua’s nullification came only minutes after the same court upheld the election of Embakasi East MP Babu Owino.
Speaking after the ruling, Wiper’s Wavinya Ndeti said that the win at the court was for the people of Machakos challenging Mutua go head back to the ground to find out who the real governor is.
“I thank God it has come to pass, the people of Machakos voted for me and today it has been proved I won.”
