ODM biggies found guilty of poll malpractices

21 March 2014, 20:20 William Korir

Nairobi - Six Orange Democratic Movement ODM politicians have been found guilty of election malpractices committed during the 2013 general elections.

The six, James Orengo, Jakoyo Midiwo, women representative Christine Ombaka, David Ochieng, Oburu Oginga and Cornel Rasanga have been found guilty of fronting election offences during the campaign period for the 2013 Siaya gubernatorial election.

The court of appeal upheld an earlier ruling by the High Court which saw the six charged for a number of malpractices including bad mouthing National Labour Party candidate William Oduol.

The five Midiwo aside, were charged with rampaging an Oduol rally and starting their own in the same grounds in dis-regard of Oduol and his supporters.

Midiwo on the other hand was charged with calling Oduol derogatory names during the campaign period.

The court ruled that there was no substance to the six' appeal to the earlier ruling by the High court, stating that there was enough evidence to prosecute them.

Judges Patrick Kiage, Agnes Murgor and Sankale ole Kantai all said that it had been proven beyond doubt that the politicians had been in the wrong.

" The earlier ruling proved beyond doubt that the respondents committed electoral malpractices and there is thus no reason to overturn it, they said.

Surprisingly, they did not prescribe a punishment for the six politicians.

They did however order Mr Rasanga to cater for the costs of all the electoral petitions accrued by Mr Oduol and his team.
