The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed all election petitions filed by Narc - Kenya Party leader Martha Karua against Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru. In the ruling, the court determined that all Election matters were concluded in the Dupreme Court ruling of August 6, 2019.
This was after governor Waiguru moved to the Supreme Court to challenge the Court of Appeal’s decision to remit Karua’s election petition to the High Court for hearing on merit even after it had been dismissed by Night Court Judge Lucy Gitari on grounds that it lacked merit.
In the petition, Justices Philomena Mwilu, Mohammed Ibrahim, Njoki Ndung’u, Smokin Wanjala and Isaac Lenaola agreed to Governor Waiguru's prayers that the issues raised by Martha Karua were similar to those she had raised in petition No. 3 of 2019. The court pronounced itself by saying that the issues were fully determined in the same Court ruling issued on March 2, 2018.
