The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the election of Embu Governor Martin Wambora.

The court ruled that the petition filed against Wambora by Lenny Kivuti, who lost to the governor in the 2017 General Elections, lacked merit.

Governor Wambora stated that the decision by the highest court in the country upheld the will of the people of Embu County.

Wambora further noted that it was time to move on to working for the residents of Embu.

“It is now work from this point forward, we will begin our projects next week.

“We have spent too much time in the courts and we hope those who have bene engaging us can now stop.

“We can now move on in unity and harmony,” remarked the Embu Governor.

Kivuti challenges Court of Appeal ruling

Former Embu Senator Lenny Kivuti had moved to the Supreme Court to challenge the ruling made by the Court of Appeal in August last year.

The appellate court had overturned the decision made by the High Court which had nullified the election of Wambora.

The judges of the second highest court, had ruled that the High court had made a mistake in invalidating the election of the Embu County boss.

Justice William Musyoka of the High Court had in February 2018 ruled that after the recount of the votes had showed irregularities that had compromised the election process.
