The Supreme Court has temporarily reinstated Garissa County Governor Nathif Jama pending the hearing and determination of an appeal he has filed challenging his ouster.

Judges Philip Tonui and Njoki Ndung’u said the appeal raises arguable points of law and the public interest demands that public resources be managed by the constitutionally elected person.

They set aside temporarily the decision of the Court of Appeal which nullified his election.

They also stopped IEBC from declaring the seat vacant and swearing in of the County Assembly Speaker to act as governor.
