Court upholds Charity Ngilu’s election, orders Malombe to meet Sh6m cost

The High court on Friday upheld Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu’s win in the August 2017 election.

Judge Pauline Nyamweya, in her ruling, declared that Ngilu was validly elected.

The judge dismissed the petition filed by former Governor Julius Malombe on grounds it lacked merit.

She said the petitioner had no sufficient evidence of voter bribery, intimidation, and ballot stuffing.

The court ordered Malombe to meet the Sh6million cost for the petition.
