06 February 2016, 18:30
Nairobi - A Nairobi Lawyer will head to court next week to have the election of Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero annulled over bribery allegations.
Ahmednassir Abdulahi, who represented Ferdinand Waititu who lost the 2013 Gubernatorial polls and the subsequent election petition says that next week he will file a case to see Kidero's election annulled.
This follows a decision by the Judiciary Service Commision JSC to probe in a public tribunal, the conduct of Supreme Court judge Philip Tunoi who is accused of receiving a KES 200 million bribe from Kidero.
Abdulahi, who was accused by Kidero of a vendetta against him now says that a petition is on the way.

" We are going to appeal the election win on the grounds that there was clearly a malpractice committed here as has been noted by the JSC," he said Saturday.
The lawyer who earlier claimed that the bribe to Tunoi was KES 300 million and not the announced 200, says that the announcement by the JSC makes it clear that there was injustice in the petition.
" We can clearly argue that there was a case of injustice here. There is a case for the Governor to answer," he added.
Kidero has thus far denied that he bribed Tonui while the judge says he is awaiting results of the tribunal.
