High court directs parties in Steve Mbogo’s petition to make extra copies due to upcoming elections

The High Court has directed parties in Steve Mbogo’s petition seeking to have the election of Starehe constituency MP Charles Njagua nullified to make an extra copy of all their documents.
While giving the direction, the presiding judge said that this will ensure that the matter is not halted during the fresh presidential elections set for 26th October as documents tend to ‘disappear’ during elections
The judge also directed the parties to file and serve their submissions by Friday 13th October.
The matter will be mention on 18th October to confirm compliance.

In the petition, the businessman alleges that the parliamentary election in Starehe Constituency was marred by massive irregularities.

Mbogo claims that the IEBC selectively manipulated, engineered and distorted the votes cast and counted particularly in favour of the Jaguar thereby affecting the final results tallied.

He further claims that in a substantial number of instances, the IEBC grossly inflated the National Assembly votes cast in all six wards of Starehe Constituency in favour of the MP thereby affecting the final results.

Through lawyer Anthony Oluoch, the politician claims that several forms 35 A’s were not signed adding that the parliamentary election was not conducted in accordance with the Constitution and Election laws.

Mbogo added that he has evidence that there was systematic interference and manipulation of the results by the Returning Officer causing the systemic manipulation and distortion of the results rendered impossible to determine who actually won the seat.
