Outspoken Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter has been handed a political lifeline after the Court of Appeal upheld his election victory which had been nullified by the high Court in March.
On Wednesday, judges Erastus Githinji, Fatuma Sichale and Hannah Okwengu sitting in Eldoret ruled that the MP was validly elected.
Justice Githinji, who delivered the ruling on behalf of the other judges, said the petitioner, Bernard Kitur, did not prove claims that Mr Keter engaged in election malpractice by campaigning beyond stipulated the time.
“The petitioner did not prove that the MP committed [an] election offence by campaigning after the stipulated time and [allegations of] bribing voters as he relied on hearsay and his (Keter’s) win is hereby upheld,” ruled Justice Githinji.
“The conduct did not amount to campaign in law as it had no substantial effect on the outcome of the elections,” added the judges in the ruling.
