Siaya Senator James Orengo will be leading a team of ten lawyers petitioning Machakos Governor, Alfred Mutua’s win in the August poll.

Alongside him will be Otiende Amollo who was also part of the huge team of lawyers petitioning Uhuru Kenyatta’s win in the Supreme Court, a case they won.

Wavinya Ndeti who is the petitioner filed a 10,000 pages petition on Tuesday at the Machakos law courts.

She said that her case will prove that her opponent was rigged in and that the process was fraudulent.

The Wiper candidate hopes that the court will rule in her favour as it did in on Friday where it overturned the presidential election.

Ms Ndeti’s lawyer, Danson Maanzo said that they want the court to nullify the Machakos gubernatorial election as it was down right irregular.

”We are seeking several orders so that the election can be nullified. We cannot have peace without justice and so we have come to court to seek justice.”

Ms Ndeti was accompanied by her supporters who broke in to song and dance as their candidate filed the petition.

Governor Mutua of the Maendeleo Chap Chap beat Wavinya in August and was sworn in a week later.
