Kidero Hires Lawyer Julie Soweto in Case Against Gladys Wanga

Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero hired advocate Julie Soweto in his petition challenging Homa Bay Governor Gladys Wanga's election victory.

Soweto was seen with the former governor at the Homa Bay High Court on Friday, October 7, where the case's pretrial hearing was scheduled.

Kidero was one of the few candidates who stood up to the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) in the Nyanza region during the recent elections. The former Nairobi governor ran as an independent candidate in the August 9 election, finishing second to Wanga.

While protesting his defeat, Kidero claimed that his agents were barred from polling places where his opponents interfered with vote tallying.

He vowed to appeal the decision and filed a lawsuit against the IEBC and Governor Wanga.

"Many polling stations altered Form 37A, resulting in numerous anomalies in the results." "We will follow the law in order to contest the gubernatorial results," Kidero said.

"I've always been a peaceful person, and that's why I'm here." Keep calm, my people, because this issue will be adequately addressed," he added.

Soweto was one of 42 lawyers who represented Azimio la Umoja chief Raila Odinga in the presidential petition case in August.
