The Kitui High Court has today (Wednesday) upheld the election of Kitui South MP Rachael Kaki in the August 8, 2017, general elections.
Justice Lilian Mutende termed the petition by Wiper’s Kennedy Moki as one that was incompetent, based on allegations and lacked merit.
According to court, the petitioner failed to prove his allegations that the election was marred by irregularities and malpractices and that Rachael Kaki committed election offences during August polls.
The court observed that there was no evidence given on voter bribery claims as raised by the petitioner.
He further held that the petitioner could not justify allegations that his agents were arrested and intimidated before and during elections.
Kaki won the August elections on Jubilee ticket. She was declared winner after garnering over 23,000 votes against 16,000 for Kennedy Moki.
Mr Moki was slapped with a bill of 1 million to each of the three respondents.
Speaking after the ruling Hon Kaki promised to work with Kitui South, both her supporters and the petitioners supporters.
