This is a nightmare for Evans Kidero.
Its clear that he was the better candidate amongst those who stood against him in the last general elections. Even though some of his actions while in office have left a lot to be desired he is still better than the man called Waititu who believes he can beat the governor. Should the supreme court uphold the decision then Kidero has a fight in his hands.
Kenyans are waiting to see if Waititu, a man who was barred from holding public office by the court is allowed by IEBC to contest. And even if he does not take part Jubilee will throw everything in the ring to take control of the city.
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.
