Case challenging Jennifer Shamalla’s nomination dismissed
The High Court has dismissed a case challenging the nomination of lawyer Jennifer Shamalla by Jubilee party to represent marginalized communities in the National Assembly.
Justice John Mativo ruled that the case filed by former Jubilee Elections Board Chairman Aden Noor Ali has no merit and that the applicant did not satisfy the threshold to be granted the orders sought.
Further, the court ruled that the case had no arguable merit and did not deserve the leave sought.
In the case Noor moved to court seeking to have Shamalla’s name substituted with his, claiming that he is from the minority Somali while she is from the populous Luhya thus representing no known special interest.
Noor claimed that the electoral commission illegally Ggazetted Shamalla as a Jubilee Party nominee to the National assembly to represent special interests.
