Martha Karua on Thursday announced that she would challenge the ruling by court of appeal after her petition against against Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru was dismissed.

The former MP for Gichugu Constituency took to her twitter account and stated that the petition was dismissed with no orders.

Karua was skeptical over the decision and was visibly angered by the reaction of Waiguru after the ruling was made.

The three-judge bench threw out the case and upheld the previous High Court ruling.

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru who was present at the courtroom when the ruling was made, happily celebrated with her supporters outside the court.

Karua makes U-turn

The veteran politician had earlier indicated that she was ready to respect whatever the court would decide through a tweet.

She later gave clarity over claims that she had already accepted defeat after she posted her earlier tweet.

One Bob Odhiambo replied: "Sounds like you've given up, ma'am?"

In reply Karua stated: "Not so just always battle ready whatever the case."

The decision by Karua is set to be the only remaining case at the Supreme Court which is set to deliver 13 election petitions on Friday December 21.
