In Summary

  • Justice Majanja however said further orders will be granted on October 17.

Kisumu High Court has directed the electoral agency to secure gubernatorial election materials in a case where former Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma is contesting Prof Anyang’ Nyong’o win.

Judge Justice David Majanja on Wednesday directed the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to coordinate with the petitioner and other parties in the case to agree on how the election materials for Kisumu governorship race will be secured.

Mr Majanja also ordered the parties to decide on how they will access the electronic materials needed in the case.

“Parties must sit, discuss and agree on how the election materials including the important forms are to be in safe custody during the case,” said Justice Majanja.

WITNESSES

The parties are also to agree on a list of witnesses for both Prof Nyong’o and IEBC.

Mr Ranguma was seeking to have the electoral commission furnish him with crucial documents, which he said may strengthen his case.

Through his lawyer Richard Onsongo, Mr Ranguma wanted IEBC to avail all the elections materials, including but not limited to ballots papers used and unused, the voter registers and others.
