Aden Duale not out of the woods yet
Former National Assembly Deputy Speaker Farah Maalim has filed a petition challenging the reelection of Aden Duale as Garissa Town MP.
Mr Maalim is seeking to overturn National Assembly Majority Leader’s win on grounds that his election was flawed.
He alleged that Mr Duale was not validly elected as the poll was marred with massive irregularities.
Mr Maalim wants the court to direct that the respondents in the case jointly committed election irregularities.
He also wants the court to order the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to avail all voting material including voter registers, counterfoils used for all polling stations, electronic devices and equipment used during the polls within 48 hours.
