ODM MP who's election has been nullified

The Supreme court has nullified the election of Wajir West MP Mohamed Kolosh,.

On Friday, the apex court ordered IEBC to conduct a fresh poll

According to the Supreme Court judges, Mr Kolosh was not the validly elected winner due to irregularities at the Qara polling station.

"The Court of Appeal had jurisdiction to hear the appeal. We find no basis that the court acted in excess of its jurisdiction,” the court ruled in the Sammy Kemboi Kipkeu vs.Bowen David Kagongo suit.
