Case challenging Governor Alfred Mutua’s re-election to be decided in February

The verdict in a petition seeking to overturn Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua’s re-election in last year’s General Election will be delivered on February 9.

On Monday, petitioner Wavinya Ndeti’s lawyers made their final submissions before Justice Aggrey Muchelule in Machakos.

In her petition, Ndeti alleges that the gubernatorial election was marred by irregularities and that IEBC erroneously declared Mutua the winner.

Ndeti, who unsuccessfully contested the seat on Wiper party ticket claims alleges that Governor Mutua used county resources including vehicles and funds to campaign for his re-election, contravening election laws.
