, MACHAKOS, Kenya, Jan 24 – The High Court in Kitui has upheld the election of Kitui South Member of Parliament Rachael Kaki Nyamai.
Justice Lilian Mutende threw out a petition filed by her main contestant in August 2017 elections after finding that the petitioner, Ken Moki, failed to make his case.
The Wiper Democratic Movement candidate filed the case arguing that the Jubilee Party on whose ticket Rachael contested the seat, did not conduct free and fair nominations.
Judge Mutende found Moki’s argument as lacking merit as not being a member of the Jubilee Party, their nominations did not directly affect him.
Kaki was directly nominated by Jubilee to vie for Kitui South parliamentary seat.
