Joho's new request to Court

Joho's opponent now has 14 days to counter him.

Through his lawyer Mr Mohammed Balala, Ali Hassan Joho has told High Court judges that the case levelled against his gubernatorial win in the just concluded elections was based on false allegations.

He has divulged that the case has many factual and legal errors, thus his push for dismissal.

On whether the court should grant his rival to force polls team IEBC to have fresh elections held in Mombasa, Mr Joho has argued that the petitioner failed to include his Deputy Governor Michael Kingi, a move that the court should us to oust the case.

The former Mombasa Senator and also a former Wiper Democratic Party Secretary General Hassan Omar went to court to contest the reelection of Ali Joho as the Mombasa Governor, citing irregularities.

Mr Omar, in his petition, wanted Joho's victory be nullified and be declared winner of the county seat.

He argued that Mr Joho was unfairly elected and the returning officer erred in making the declaration during the August 8th elections.

But the ODM county boss denied allegations of bribery as well as other election offences leveled against him by Omar. Mr Omar has two weeks to respond to the Joho demands.
