CORD co-principal Moses Wetangula has lost his Bungoma Senate seat after High Court ruled his election null and void.
The election was nullified on account of massive irregularities that compromised the electoral process.
The court also noted that the results announced by the returning officer were inconsistent in various polling stations.
Former MP Musikari Kombo filed the petition after losing to Mr Wetang’ula in the March 4 election, citing massive irregularities.
Mr Kombo, in an affidavit, cites alleged inaccuracies in submission of results from various polling centres by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) officials and intimidation of his agents, among other 11 counts, as grounds that necessitate nullification of Mr Wetang’ula’s election.
