Alfred Keter loses his parliamentary seat

Just in

Eldoret High Court judge George Kanyi Kimondo ruled that Keter's election was marred with irregularities and illegalities and did not meet the threshold of a free and fair poll.

Specifically, Kimondo rukled that there was enough evidence which showed Keter deliberately campaigned after the expiry of the official deadline established by the IEBC.

In the August 8 General Election, Keter was declared the winner by IEBC with 28,923 votes against 13,872 garnered by independent candidate Benard Kibor Kitur who came second.

Kitur later moved to the court seeking to have the election results nullified on account of massive irregularities.
