Impending Political Extinction As Judges Prepare Ruling On Governor Awiti

Cyprian Awiti Loses Seat Homabay

An atmosphere pregnant with expectation hangs over the corridors of the Supreme Court as judges prepare the ruling on Homabay Governor Cyprian Awiti. Strike one from the High Court, and strike two from the Court of Appeal nullified the election of the humbly built governor. The stage is now set for strike three.

The governor continues to hope that his win will be upheld. Logic and case history do not give his opponent the best of odds. Maybe it is time for him to hang his political boots.

Challenged by his opponent, Oyugi Magwanga, the judges at the lower level courts agreed that his election had irregularities and therefore, the governor was not validly elected.

In the Court of Appeal, the decision to nullify his election was agreed to by judges Otieno Odek, Fatuma Sichale, and Philip Waki.

It is then that he decided to go over to the highest court in the land.

However, not many have hope in his case and believe his goose was cooked long ago. It remains to be seen if this is true.

Unfortunately, he has many fans.
