Supreme Court once again supercedes 'lesser' courts

06 August 2014, 16:19 William Korir

Nairobi - The Supreme Court has upheld the election of Narok MP Lemanken Aramat, which had been contested by the High Court, bringing into focus the amount of cases being overturned by the court.

According to the ruling, the decision to query Aramat's election at the High Court was our of time and thus could not stand.

The decision left a happy Aramat smiling away.

" I am happy and I look forward to continuing with the mandate I was given by the people of Narok South, the elated MP said.

The ruling is the latest in a number of petitions that have seen their death when presented at the Supreme Court.

A good number of cases have been ruled out due to technicalities, in what political analyst George Maina says is worrying.

" It is sad to see the trend where cases are being ruled out not out of fact but due to technicalities associated with the law, he said.

" At the end of the day though, the law is in place for a reason and thus we have to respect it, he said.

The likes of Othaya MP Mary Wambui and Meru Governor Peter Munya have had High Court decisions overturned in their favour due to technicalities.

Supreme Court judges have severally faulted their counterparts for defying the basic basis of law in making judgements.
