Everybody will be surprised to know what is in the report - Babu Owino's rival cause’s anxiety

The final verdict with be delivered on Friday

According to Mureithi, everybody will be surprised to know what is in the report after the scrutiny process.

“Everybody will be surprised to know what is in the report after the scrutiny process. Final Verdict will be given on Friday March 2nd by the court. I choose to hold my celebrations until the final announcement. TUZIDI KUOMBA. Blessed day” shared Francis Mureithi.

On Monday, reports emerged showing the final numbers in vote recount where, Owino had garnered 46,817 votes against 42,501 votes garnered by his main rival Francis Mureithi.

The final vote recount tally was signed by High Court Deputy Registrars Esther Mburu and Mbayaki Wafula.

Confusion

There was confusion last week as both Owino and his rival Mureithi declared themselves victors in the Vote recount.

On January 12 2017, the High Court ordered recount and scrutiny of all votes cast in the parliamentary race during the August 8 election in Embakasi East.

Election petition

The ruling was made in an election petition filed by Owino's opponent from the Jubilee Party, Francis Mureithi.

The vote recount revealed slightly higher figures than those used to determine the parliamentary race during the August 8 elections.

During last year's election, Owino was declared the winner with 46,587 votes against Mureithi's 42,253.
