Former Kajiado governor David Nkedianye has moved to the High Court to challenge the election of Governor Joseph ole Lenku.

Through lawyer Saitabao Kanchori, Dr Nkedianye said he had “tonnes” of evidence to show that Mr Lenku was not elected as the governor of Kajiado County.

“We have evidence that votes were tampered with in more than 160 polling stations,” he said.

“Some votes were deleted, others were added, while others were thrown away altogether. This is not just about Nkedianye, it is about the people of Kajiado who turned out to vote in large numbers only to see a few people going against the will of the people.”

Dr Nkedianye said that by going to court, he is looking forward to a process that will unearth the truth “and give justice to the people of Kajiado”.

SUPREME COURT

His lawyer said that their decision to go to court was informed by proceedings at the Supreme Court where the presidential election was annulled.
