Ranguma to pay Sh5m as ‘embarrassing’ suit against Nyong’o poll

Former Kisumu governor Jack Ranguma was Wednesday slapped with a Sh5 million bill of costs after the High Court  dismissed his petition challenging the election of Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o, citing lack of evidence. Justice Justice David Majanja ruled that Mr Ranguma did not prove that the elections were interfered with. “The allegations made by the petitioner are vague and embarrassing. Such vagueness is not cured by stating in the petition that the grounds, information and evidence are detailed in the supporting affidavits,” said Justice Majanja. Half of the amount is going to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and the balance to Prof Nyong’o. “The costs shall be taxed and the total costs certified by the Deputy Registrar of this court. The certified costs awarded shall be paid out of the security deposit on a pro-rata basis,” said Justice Majanja. Mr Ranguma had filed the case alleging that there were massive electoral malpractices committed by the IEBC and Prof Nyong’o, including doctoring the final results. According to the results declared by the IEBC, Prof Nyong’o garnered 227,127 votes, Mr Ranguma got 156,963 votes and Jubilee’s Christine Atieno garnered 2,383 votes. Amani National Congress’ Peter Charles Owino Omollo got 1,955 votes while David Otieno Wayiera managed 821 votes. Mr Ranguma insisted that the polls were not free, fair, credible and transparent, claiming there was tampering of ballot boxes, that his agents were kicked out of polling stations and that some Forms 37A were not signed by the presiding officers of various polling stations. The former governor claimed the electoral process was adulterated to favour Prof Nyong’o.
