Kenya: Ndiritu Muriithi survives petition, again

Laikipia Governor Ndiritu Muriithi has emerged three times lucky and survived a protracted election petition scare.

The Supreme Court on Friday upheld his win and rejected his rival’s appeal on the candidature of the county boss.

The petitioner, Mr Sammy Ndung’u Waity, had complained that Mr Ndiritu Muriithi was not validly elected because he resigned late from Jubilee and therefore barred from contesting.

But the judges said the appeal was just rehashing the case Mr Waity had lost at the Court of Appeal.

The court said in a decision read by Justice Smokin Wanjala that all pre-election disputes cannot be a matter for an election court if the electoral commission and the political parties dispute tribunal have handled it.
