The Court of Appeal will hear NARC Kenya, Martha Karua’s petition against Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru afresh, setting aside the High Court ruling.
Karua’s case, was dismissed on November 15 by Justice Lucy Gitari who she accused of being biased.
On December 15 through her lawyer, Gitobu Imanyara sought to have Gitari’s ruling set aside saying that the judge ignored results of electoral materials scrutiny conducted pursuant to her orders issued on October 23, 2017.
“The results of the scrutiny were available to her and thereby occasioned great prejudice to the petitioner,” the lawyer said.
The petition was thrown out because it was ‘hopeless, defective and incurable.’
But Ms Karua said that the lady justice erred by ‘not finding that the petition raised weighty issues of law.’
