An application seeking to bar Governor Amos Ayaribo and his deputy from a petition challenging their August 9 election win has been dismissed. Governor Amos Ayaribo and his deputy has been facing petitions challenging their victory during the August 9 general elections.
Justice Kimondo Kanyi struck out Daniel Ayiera's application to disallow Mr. Nyaribo and his deputy James Gesami from the proceedings because they had not appeared in person to testify in the matter where they are listed as parties.
Governor Amos Nyaribo vied under the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) which is one of the political party in Azimio La Umoja Coalition during the August 9 general elections. However, after his election as Nyamira Governor he has not defeated to Kenya Kwanza Coalition like other governors who dumped Azimio after president William Ruto was declared the winner of the August 9 presidential polls.
It's now a matter of wait and see what happens in the coming months if the court will affirm his election or not.
