Anwar Loitiptip wins Lamu senator petition at Supreme Court - 3 months ago, 18 Jan 10:55

Sam Kiplagat

The Supreme Court on Friday validated the election of Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip, saying electoral rules and the Constitution were followed.

While reading the judgment, justice Njoki Ndung'u said the Court of Appeal erred in shifting the evidence burden to the senator.

Mr Loitiptip of Jubilee Party was dethroned in July following an appeal against the High Court ruling that upheld his poll win.

The decision was a big win for the petitioner, Mr Hassan Albeity, who had for the seat on a Wiper Democratic Movement ticket.

Earlier on Monday, lawmakers Kangogo Bowen (Marakwet East) and Annie Wanjiku Kibeh (Gatundu North) won the cases against their election in rulings delivered at the top court.

Regarding Mr Bowen, Justice Smokin Wanjala said the appeal did not not raise issues of interpretation.

On Ms Kibeh's case, the court said the irregularities cited did not justify annulment.

Court of Appeal orders fresh poll.
