The election petition, filed by former area Senator Hassan Omar, relied on numerous documents and submissions that were used by the Supreme Court in nullifying the Presidential election results.

A report published by the Supreme Court registrar, after Chief Justice David Maraga ordered an audit of the IEBC documents, found that many of the forms used in declaring Presidential results in Mombasa County had errors among many other irregularities.

“Mombasa is one of the areas that was reported with numerous election discrepancies,” the former senator stated.

On Monday, Omar stated that although he had been ready to concede, he had received compelling evidence demonstrating the election in Mombasa was flawed prompting him to move to court.

Out of the six constituencies, four were cited for various issues in the report prepared by the Court-appointed registrar.

In Nyali, the form 34B did not have a serial number even though it was signed by agents.

In Kisauni, the name of the constituency was written by hand and the Returning Officer did not sign the form.

The Returning Officer in Likoni also did not sign the form while the one from Mvita did not have a watermark.

“We have some of the best lawyers and we appreciate the overwhelming evidence that we have received. We are going to ask the court to punish those who committed these election malpractices,” the former Senator stated at press conference in Mombasa.

Omar further explained that he would no longer campaign for NASA leader Raila Odinga whom he accused of “looking the other way when it comes to his people”.
