Anwar Loitiptip Youthful Senator loses seat

  • Published:

The Court has ordered a repeat of the polls.

Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip has lost his seat in a court battle.

A Court of Appeal in Mombasa on Thursday ordered the IEBC to conduct fresh polls in 60 days, following a successful petition by his competitor.

Court of Appeal has nullified his 2017 poll victory citing irregularities. Anwar is 28. The petition had been filed by his opponent Hassan Albeyit who came in second during the August 8th 2017 election.

Earlier, Mr Loitiptip had defeated Jubilee's Abu Chiaba who was incumbent during the Jubilee Party primaries in April, 2017. He is affiliated to Jubilee Party.

On February 9, High Court Judge Asenath Ongeri had dismissed Mr Albeity's petition citing failure to comply with court timelines and ordered each party to bear their costs.
