Voi High court has dismissed the election petition challenging the election of Taita Taveta governor H.E Granton Samboja

Voi High court has dismissed the election petition challenging the election of Taita Taveta governor H.E Granton Samboja.

Speaking today when giving the verdict, Justice Eric Ogola said that the dismissal is meant to pave way for a similar case being handled by Nairobi high court but which carry similar aspects.

“This case lacks a very vital component which involves investigations by relevant bodies like the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission, director of criminal investigation and Kenyatta university which is included as the certificates bear it’s names. It is not advisable to continue with the case here,” said Justice Ogola.

Earlier on, the EACC applied to withdraw from the case so as to concentrate on the other case in Nairobi a move that was also taken by Kenyatta university.

The petitioners will pay costs amounting to half a million shillings.

Speaking at ACK Cathedral, Voi during a thanks giving mass moments after the verdict, Governor Samboja attributed the dismissal to God’s grace.
