ODM loses two seats in its Coast stronghold

Major loss for Raila Odinga's party

Senior Resident Magistrate Corrilius Nyawiri nullified the election Shella ward MCA Kadenge Mwathethe as well as that of Ganda MCA Abdulrahman Omar.

The nullification was done after two successive election petitions that were based on massive irregularities in the August 8 General Election.

Omar's election was challenged by Mr Joseph Kiponda of Jubilee Party, while Mwathethe's win was contested by Abdulkarim Twahir who vied on a Wiper ticket.

Omar and Mwathethe will now pay Sh2 million each as costs for the petitions.
