Mawathe moves to Supreme Court challenging court ruling

Embattled Embakasi South MP Julius Mawathe has moved to the Supreme Court to challenge an appellate court ruling that nullified his August 2017 election victory.

Court of appeal judges Daniel Musinga, Mohammed Warsame and Kathurima M’inoti observed that the election was not free and fair directing the independent electoral and boundaries commission to conduct fresh election with accordance with the law.

Mawathe says he was confident of the pending outcome of the apex court accusing his challenger former Embakasi South MP of malice.

Elsewhere, this year’s Sabasaba day celebrations were characterized by calls for justice for victims of police brutality even as political leaders appeared to have snubbed the event.

Nairobi Woman representative Esther Passaris leading residents of the city’s Eastland’s area in demonstrations to protest against police brutality.

This as Kenya Union of Domestic, Hotels, Educational Institutions, Hospitals and Allied Workers Albert Njeru hailed democratic reforms in the country since the advent of multiparty politics even as he supported President Uhuru Kenyatta’s crusade on the war on corruption.

Meanwhile, Nyatike MP Tom Odege has faulted the parliamentary joint committee on illicit sugar saying the committee fell short of expectations.

This even as a section of political leaders from western Kenya called on president Kenyatta to form a commission of  inquiry into the influx of contraband sugar in the country
