Omar’s Petition Is Full Of Errors, Should Be Thrown Out – Joho Says

Joho’s lawyer, Mohammed Balala on Wednesday said Omar’s request for fresh polls was invalid as the petition did not enjoin Deputy Michael Kingi.


Omar has stated that there will be ‘by elections’ in Mombasa after the court hears his case. He says that the governor election was marred with irregularities.
