Blow to Governor Mutua after lawyers abandon him at last minute

Machakos governor, Alfred Mutua was left perplexed after his lawyers, Ben Musau and Waweru Gatonye, quit the petititon challenging his gubernatorial win of August 8th elections.

The petition was heard before justice Aggrey Muchelule on Monday, November 20, with Wavinya seeking to nullify Mutua’s win.
According to Citizen,the lawyers ,made it more dramatic by walking out of court following the judge’s decision to decline them leave to prepare for more applications against the petition.

The judge granted the request in a case that was set to see Wavinya appear as the first witness.

This comes as a blow since two weeks ago,High Court also threw out his application to strike out Wavinya Ndeti’s petition.

Me Ndeti cites electoral malpractices as reasons to annul Governor Mutua’s win

“There were no elections conducted in Machakos county. What happened was a personal and county affair. You cannot go into an election with your workers being the one who is running the same,” Wavinya was quoted saying.

The former Kathiani MP has since expressed confident of winning the petititon.

A total of ten senior lawyers who include Otiende Omollo, James Orengo, T.J. Kajwang, James Gichanga and Daniel Maanzo would be representing Ms Wavinya during the hearing of the petition.
