Governor Samboja petition dismissed and referred to criminal court in Nairobi

Governor Granton Samboja on Monday got a reprieve after the High Court in Voi dismissed a petition challenging his election.

The petitioner had challenged Governor Samboja’s election on August 8, over, among other grievances, the authenticity of his academic certificates.

Taita Taveta Presiding High Court judge Justice Erick Ogola struck out the petition, saying the matter can be competently handled by Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi, which is handling a similar case.
