Elgeyo Marakwet Senator,Kipchumba Murkomen now says decision by the Supreme Court to uphold Governor Cyprian Awiti’s election is ill advised as it only proves his fear that the opposition Chief,Raila Odinga is a black magic master.
The Elgeyo Marakwet Senator criticizes the decision by the Supreme court insisting that the Homabay County elections were marred with abnormal irregularities.He bitterly blames Raila Odinga for killing democracy in the country instead of promoting it.
The Supreme Court has overturned a decision to nullify the election
of Homa Bay Governor Cyprian Awiti saying he was validly elected.
Supreme Court judge Jackton Ojwang set aside the court of appeal
ruling that overturned his win saying that the results declared by the
Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) will stand.
“The Appellate Court decision of the 19 July, 2018 is set aside in its
entirety, the effect being that the election results for Homa Bay
county in respect of the offices of Governor and Deputy Governor as
declared by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission
will stand as the valid position in the Constitution,” ruled Justice
The top court also ruled that the petitioner, former Kasipul MP Oyugi
Magwanga will bear costs for both Awiti and himself.
“The third and fourth respondents shall bear the Appellate Court
costs in the high court, court of appeal and supreme court… the first
and second respondents shall bear their own costs,” he ruled.
