In Summary
  • Mr Ranguma said he will challenge the High Court ruling delivered by Justice David Majanja on January 3, 2018.

Former Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma will be making a second attempt to overturn Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o’s win when he takes the case to the Court of Appeal.

Mr Ranguma said he will challenge the High Court ruling delivered by Justice David Majanja on January 3 that upheld the victory of Prof Nyong’o as the validly elected county boss in the August 8, 2017 elections.

Ranguma's lawyer, Mr Richard Onsongo, said his client will be filing a notice of appeal Thursday (January 11) at the appellate court in Kisumu.

However, he stated that he will not handle the case but will hand it over to another advocate, saying he might be carried away by emotions while arguing the case.

“We are appealing the case on grounds that we did not agree with the decision of High Court Judge Majanja,” said Mr Onsongo.

In his judgement, Justice Majanja dismissed Mr Ranguma’s election petition filed on September 6, 2017 for lack of evidence.

PETITION COST

He ruled that the petitioner failed to prove that the elections were interfered with, further dealing Mr Ranguma a blow by slapping him with Sh5 million litigation cost for the petition.
