Reprieve for Marakwet East MP David Bowen as court upholds win

The Court of Appeal has upheld the election of David Kangogo Bowen as the Marakwet East Member of Parliament.

The ruling by a three-judge bench read by Justice Erastus Githinji indicated that the alleged irregularities were not supported by evidence or proven to have any significant effect on the outcome of the results as to justify the nullification of the election.

‘ In the circumstances, the judgement of the election court cannot therefore stand,@ ruled Justice Githinji.

This comes just 4 months after the High Court in Eldoret nullified his election following a successful petition filed by former minister Linah Jebii Kilimo.

In his ruling, Judge George Kimondo ruled that the August 8, 2017 election in Marakwet East was marred by serious irregularities, adding that the polls were neither accurate nor verifiable.

While the judge noted that the elections were not tainted by violence, he pointed out that there were grave anomalies that cast doubt on accuracy of the numbers, verifiablity, credibility or integrity of the results.
