Lawyer Who Defended Raila During Petition Now in Court To Challenge Gladys Wanga's Win

A well-known attorney for Azimio who made headlines during the presidential election petition hearing and later during the final ruling is back in court, but this time she is on the other side of the issue. This time, she is arguing against Azimio.

Lawyer Julie Soweto gained notoriety for the manner in which she attempted to persuade the court that Venezuelan Jose Carmago rigged the presidential election held on August 9 in favor of President-elect William Ruto by staging Forms 34A in the IEBC portal. This caused Soweto to gain attention in the media.

In the end, the court decided that her petition was nothing more than a bunch of hot air and a wild goose chase, but not before she was given a warning that future judges would lose trust in her.

Today, Soweto is in court in Homa Bay County, defending the former governor of Nairobi, Dr. Evans Kidero, who is contesting the victory of the incumbent governor of Azimio, Gladys Wanga.

Kidero believes that the process was not carried out in an honest and fair manner, and as a result, he wants the court to overturn Wanga's victory. In order to accomplish this goal, he has retained the services of a group of attorneys led by Soweto.
