WAJIR ( Halbeeg News)-The supreme court of Kenya will on Friday this week decide the petition against the governor of Wajir county, Mohamed Abdi Mohamud by former governor Ahmed Abdullahi.
In a press statement issued on Tuesday, the apex court said the judgement would be delivered by Friday 15th February.
The petition was filed by Mr Ahmed Abdullahi Mohamed on September 6, 2017, challenging the declaration of results in which Mr Mohamed Abdi Mohamud was declared the winner.
The Supreme Court has earlier this week dismissed claims by some section of intellectuals from the county that it is deliberately delaying the determination of an election petition challenging the election of Wajir County Governor Mohamed Abdi Mahamud.
The High Court, as the election Court, delivered its Judgment on January 12, 2018, in favour of Mr Ahmed Abdullahi Mohamad.
Governor Mahamud was dissatisfied with the judgment, and he moved to the court of appeal where his case was later dismissed on April 20 last year.
Mahamud, once again was dissatisfied with the Appellate court’s judgment, and therefore filed an appeal before the Supreme Court on May 7, 2018.
The Petition of Appeal was then heard on November 21, 2018.
