Aluoch retains parliamentary seat following court ruling

21 February 2014, 18:20 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Olago Aluoch has retained his Kisumu West Constituency parliamentary seat following a ruling by the Court of Appeal in Kisumu.

This follows a High court ruling that had rubber stamped his win in the March 2013 general elections.

Sitting in Kisumu, court of appeal judges Wanjiru Karanja, Festus Omuhami and Sankale Kantai ruled that there was not sufficient evidence to overule his victory.

The challenger Rosa Oketch Buyu had gone to the appeal court to challenge an earlier ruling by the High court which stated that the elections had no irregularities and that Aluoch's win was free and fair.

But the judges said that the High court ruling was valid and that the petitioner had not done anything to sufficiently show that there was a problem with the last ruling.

" There is not suffecient evidence to support the plea by the petitioner or to draw into doubt the earlier ruling by the High court so we dismiss the case as null and void, read the judges' ruling.

They further ordered that Buyu be charged with the responsibility of taking care of all expenses related to the failed appeal.

The ruling led to wild celebrations by Aluoch and his supporters who jubilantly danced and sang outside the court.

" It has been a trying period for me, my family and residents of Kisumu West but finally we have some peace of mind and can look forward to moving ahead with the development agenda, said Aluoch.
