In Summary

  • Supreme Court Justice Isaac Lenaola, while throwing out the case, further directed that each party bears costs of the proceedings.
  • However, taking to Twitter soon afterwards, Ms. Karua said: “I did not get justice at the court but Aluta continua. The journey to success is long and wi(n)ding.”

Narc-Kenya party leader Martha Karua has faulted the Kenyan judicial system after her petition challenging the election of Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru was on Tuesday dismissed.

Supreme Court Justice Isaac Lenaola, while throwing out the case, further directed that each party bears costs of the proceedings.

However, taking to Twitter soon afterwards, Ms. Karua said: “I did not get justice at the court but Aluta continua. The journey to success is long and wi(n)ding.”

She also thanked those who “who stood with me in my judicial marathon,” as well as her lawyers Gitobu Imanyara and C.N Kihara saying “their zeal and professionalism remain unmatched!”

Governor Waiguru, addressing the press after the ruling, urged the Narc-Kenya party leader to accept the results and move on.

The Kirinyaga County chief further urged Ms. Karua to wait for 2022 to get back in the ring again if she is still unsatisfied with the verdict.

The Tuesday ruling comes after Karua moved to the Supreme Court to appeal the dismissal of her case challenging the election of Governor Waiguru by the Appellate Court.

The Court of Appeal ruled that the former minister had failed to prove her case beyond reasonable doubt on claims that there was bribery in the gubernatorial election in 2017.
