Narok county governor Patrick Ntutu who was elected on the United Democratic Alliance party has recieved a big reprieve after his main challenger in the August poll Moitalel Ole Kenta of the Orange Democratic Movement party filed a petition to withdraw the case.
The former Narok North constituency member of Parliament has this morning filed the application before the Narok High Court Judge Lady Justice Teresia Matheka.
This is after Opinion shapers from the region led by Anglican Churches Of Kenya Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit asked leaders who had challenged their competitors wins to withdraw such cases and instead solve them out of court.
The Orange Democratic Movement party candidate Ole Kenta had challenged Ntutu's win alleging that there were massive irregularities including voted swapping in favour of Ntutu who was cleared the winner of the August polls after chaos erupted. This becomes the first case to be withdrawn as the hearings begin.
