The governor, who recently underwent an eye surgery, has a daunting task of reorganising his administration.

“(Mr) Awiti must now move with speed to reorganise his administration for the sake of efficient service delivery to the people of Homa Bay,” added Mr Magwanga.

Mr Awiti, through his communications director Maurice Kaluoch, said his agenda after the long legal battle will be to work towards achieving the government’s Big Four Agenda besides fighting corruption.

“My government will collaborate with relevant government authorities to eradicate corruption,” he said.

SUPREME COURT

"My administration will not only sack corrupt officials, but it will also make sure they are locked up in jail," he said.

But even as the former MP welcomed the Supreme Court verdict, his lead counsel in the petition, Mr Charles Kanjama criticised the ruling.

“It (the ruling) failed to consider various critical points raised by my clients,” Mr Kanjama said.

He went on: “It turned a blind eye to substantial evidence of electoral malpractice and rigging. It is not a good precedent.”
