Wambui will come back stronger

13 February 2014, 18:12 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Deposed Othaya MP Mary Wambui is adamant she will be back stronger after election petition defeat.

The court of appeal in Nyeri on Thursday dismissed her election as Othaya MP. A three judge bench comprising Alnasir Visram, Martha Koome and Otieno Odek said Wambui’s election was null and void.

The court said that according to evidence submitted to the High Court, the elections were not administered accurately in accordance with the law.

The sudden change of fortunes for the MP brought tears of disbelief as she and her supporters reacted in shock at the announcement.

The volatile Wambui though was confident that the by-election which is due to take place in eight months time will go in her favour.

" I will be back stronger. This is a setback to the people of Othaya but we will be back, she muttered.

In the ruling, the court of appeal set aside the judgment that was issued by Murang’a based judge, Jairus Ngaah on September 12, 2013 dismissing the poll petition that had been filed by Peter Gichuki King’ara.

The judge had earlier said that King’ara did not furnish the court with sufficient evidence to justify his claims.

The court concurred with the petitioner's claims that the judge erred in law for failing to allow the application seeking scrutiny and recount of votes cast in the constituency in the March 4 polls.

In the ruling, the court has observed that the judge also erred by upholding Wambui’s election despite the numerous claims that were raised by the petitioner, which were all dismissed.

Wambui though feels that she is still the popular figure in Othaya despite the ruling.

" The people will speak at the end of the day and with God's grace, it will be in my favour, she said.

Her supporters too, vowed to ensure that she will be back in office.

" She was popularly elected and that is the truth of the matter. It will not change, Dismas Kamau, one of her supporters said.

" Othaya people love her and they will prove it.
