Kisumu Court of Appeal has ordered Kenya’s head of Prosecution Keriako Tobiko to prosecute Nyando MP Fred Outa after nullifying his election as he area mp.
The election as per the judge did not meet the required threshold of the election regulations as some of the candidates were humiliated in a way and Outa and his CDF Treasurer James Yogo were found to have bribed the area voters .
The presiding Judge Justice Festus Azangalala who gave the judgment on behalf of the other three Court of Appeal judges,Justices Sankale ole Kantai, Maraga David and Phillip Waki said the election of that constituency was marred with a lot of irregularities as well as bribery.
Azangalala said during the entire campaign period, a number of public resources were misused to an extent that could not be ignored by the court.
He said at some places there were cases of bribery that were reported, a factor the presiding judge said could not be entertained by the court as election procedures were severely abused.
The Nyando constituents are now heading for afresh election as per the courts directive, which is to start soon once the IEBC has been notified.
Alternatively, the candidate who appealed Jared Okello said he was sure that the victory was theirs and he will always be ready to battle Outa at all cost.
