The Court of Appeal Tuesday nullified the election of Dr. Evans Kidero and his deputy Jonathan Mueke as Nairobi Governor and Deputy Governor respectively.
Two judges upheld the complaint that his arch-rival Ferdinand Waititu raised but a third judge dismissed the appeal.
The judges said the petition court had suppressed the truth by not allowing Mr. Waititu to cross-examine witnesses.
They also said the judges’ refusal for a scrutiny of votes as had been demanded by Waititu had rendered his petition null.
The refusal for scrutiny further suppressed Waititu’s evidence, they added.
They said the election was fraught with irregularities and malpractices which naturally should have attracted criminal investigation by the presiding court.
