Anyang’ Nyong’o stay in office threatened by today's development

The Kisumu Governor is receiving treatment in the US

On Thursday, Nyong’o predecessor moved to the Court of Appeal in Kisumu where he filed a new case challenging the ruling that dismissed his petition.

Ranguma had initially claimed that he had evidence that showed widespread electoral malpractices including hacking of the IEBC systems in favour of Nyong’o.

However, the presiding judge ruled that the former Kisumu governor had submitted a weak and ‘embarrassing’ case.

Justice David Majanja on January 3 upheld the professor’s victory as the validly elected county boss in the August 8, 2017 elections.

Ranguma was further handed a Sh5million fine as costs for the petition.

“The allegations made by the petitioner are vague and embarrassing. Such vagueness is not cured by stating in the petition that the grounds, information and evidence are detailed in the supporting affidavits,” said Justice Majanja.
