A case filed by former Member of National Assembly for Kibwezi Hon. Patrick Musimba towards Makueni Governor Hon. Mutula Kilonzo Jnr has been upheld by the court. The case involved the 2022 gubernatorial elections in Makueni whereby ex MP Patrick Musimba had contested Mutula Kilonzo Jnr's win.
In the ruling by the court, the court ruled that the petitioner Patrick Musimba failed to supply sufficient evidence to overturn Mutula Jnr's victory. This becoming another case thrown out by the courts that were filed against those that had won in the 2022 general elections.
Mutula Kilonzo Jnr will now serve as the second Makueni Governor for a period of five years as per the Kenyan constitution. Mutula Kilonzo Jnr will now be able to discharge his duties as the counties boss as he seeks to continue where his predicisor former governor Kivutha Kibwana left from.
It's not yet clear whether Patrick will go and challenge the courts decision at a higher court. But all we can say is all the best to him and Mutula Kilonzo Jnr.
