Marakwet East MP Kangogo Bowen will this morning know his future in the parliamentary seat as the Supreme Court decides an appeal filed by a voter after the Appeals court upheld his win.
Sammy Kemboi, filed an appeal at the Apex Court seeking to have the High Court verdict that annulled Kangogo’s August 8, 2017 election victory upheld.
Kangogo’s election was nullified by Justice George Kimondo at the High Court in Eldoret in February 2018 on grounds that there were massive irregularities and breach of electoral laws.
However the appellate court overturned the ruling pointing out that the petitioner, Kemboi, had failed to give enough evidence to prove his claims that the August 8 poll was flawed.
Kangogo was contesting against his political arch-rival Linah Jebii who was vying on an independent ticket.
He was declared the winner with 14, 812 votes against Kilimo’s 13,845, a difference of 967 votes.
