MACHAKOS, 9TH FEBRUARY 2018: The High Court in Machakos has upheld Alfred Mutua’s election as governor in the August 8 General Election.
While delivering the verdict on Friday, Justice Aggrey Muchelule found the election to have been conducted in a “free, fair and credible,” way.
"I find that the case was not proved beyond doubt... the allegations are not established," Muchelule said in his verdict.
He found that the petitioner Wavinya Ndeti who contested on a Wiper Democratic Movement ticket, failed to prove that Mutua was irregularly elected.
Supporters of Alfred Mutua broke into song and dance inside the courtroom following the ruling.
She has been directed to pay Sh10 million in costs.
