Police open fire during ODM supporters protests

The armed police officers were forced to open fire to disperse the ODM supporters.

The rowdy youth were causing chaos at the Mombasa High Court after ODM politician Said Abdalla popularly known as Saido lost in his bid to unseat Nyali MP Mohammed Ali.

Moments earlier, the High Court in Mombasa had dismissed the petition challenging the election of Ali, a former KTN investigative journalist.

Lady Justice Lydia Achode ruled that Ali was validly elected and that claims of election irregularities were not supported by evidence.

The judge also ordered petitioner Daniel Omondi who is the cousin to Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, to pay election costs totalling Sh7 million.
