Wajir Governor Abdi Mohamud allowed to table new evidence

The Supreme Court has allowed embattled Wajir Governor Mohamed Abdi Mohamud to put in additional evidence relating to his academic certificates.

Supreme Court judges said they were not convinced that Mr. Mohamud was given a fair hearing before the High Court and the Appellate Court.

The court said that Rule 18 allows the court to accept new evidence and is not an accidental provision adding that it will not depart from previous findings.

Justices Philip Waki, Asike Makhandia and Patrick Kiage nullified Mohamud ‘s election on grounds that the Governor blundered by failing to appear in court and rebut claims that he does not possess a university degree.
