The Court of Appeal has upheld the election win of Lamu Governor Fahim Twaha and dismissed an appeal by his predecessor Issa Timamy.

A three-judge bench headed by Alnasir Visram on Thursday dismissed Mr Timamy’s case in Mombasa, saying it lacked merit.

The judges said the Lamu gubernatorial elections were substantially conducted in compliance with the law.

All grounds of appeal by Mr Timamy were dismissed as lacking in evidence.

The court, however, halved the costs of the case to be paid by the appellant from Sh12 million to Sh6 million.

But Mr Timamy did not appear to be giving up just yet.

He said he was not satisfied with ruling and would proceed to Supreme Court to challenge Court of Appeal decision

The Court of Appeal judges, he said, overlooked evidence of electoral malpractices and violations of the law he had tendered in court.

“We have decided to move to Supreme Court to make a proper determination of the matter, we have asked for a copy of judgement for perusal," he said outside the court.

More follows.

Judges say ex-governor failed to prove his claims.
