Kisumu - Silverse Anami Lisamula has lost the parliamentary seat for Shinyalu Constituency following the nullification of his election by the Court of Appeal.
The High Court in Kakamega dismissed Juatus Kizito’s petition and upheld Lisamula’s election in a ruling that was delivered last year October, Daily Nation reports.
However, the Court Appeal sitting in Kisumu faulted the High Court for dismissing Kiziko’s petition and went ahead to nullify Lisamula’s election.
In their ruling the three Appellate judges said that there was violence in the constituency on the eve of the election date and that affected the outcome of the election.
