Babu Owino's first tweet after his election was upheld
Big win for Babu
Minutes after the ruling, Owino thanked God and dedicated the win to his constituents.
“TO GOD BE THE GLORY... THE PEOPLE OF EMBAKASI EAST HAVE WON”
On Friday , Justice Mohamed Warsame, in a decision by the three-judge bench (Daniel Musinga and Kathurima M'Inoti) presiding over the case, said the High court’s reasons for nullifying the poll was not founded in law.
In March, High Court’s Justice Joseph Sergon nullified his election citing massive electoral malpractices.Addressing his supporters, Owino said it is time to serve his electorates as he reaffirmed his trust in the Judicial processes of the country
“I would like to tell my opponents to wake up and move on. I also invite them to come and help me serve the people of Embakasi. There is a time to lead and a time to be led. My opponents should respect those in power now so that when their time comes they can be respected too,” he said.
“Nyinyi wenyewe mtaamua itakapofika 2022. Mlichagua kiongozi bora. Nitawafanyia kazi. Hata ile pesa shilingi milioni nne nimepewa na mahakama leo itaenda kwa bursary ya Embakasi East,” he told a crowd outside the Supreme Court buildings which houses the Appellate Court
