Madam Governor said that Court of Appeal’s decision to revoke High court’s ruling was a big win in fight for electoral justice.

“Wavinya Ndeti’s persistence has paid her and all people who believe in electoral justice,” Ngilu said.

She pledged to support Wavinya’s bid in case a by-election is called in Machakos by the Supreme court which is also set to decide on the matter following Mutua’s appeal of Court of Appeal’s ruling.

She also called on people of Machakos to remain calm and peaceful.

On Friday last week, the Court of Appeal voided Mutua’s reelection on grounds that the Independent Electoral & Boundaries Commission(IEBC) failed to conduct free and fair gubernatorial election.

In a ruling delivered by Justice William Ouko, the Appellate court said that the gubernatorial results announced by returning officer failed to meet the constitutional test.

The court therefore ordered for fresh gubernatorial election in conformity with the constitution.
