Embattled Wajir Governor Mohamed Abdi has now filed an appeal at the Supreme Court against an earlier ruling that upheld his ouster.

This comes only moments after a decision by the Court of Appeal to endorse the nullification of his election during the August 8 poll last year.

On Friday, Mr. Abdi expressed his disappointment with the appellate court ruling  maintaining that he was validly elected as Wajir County Governor.

“Take notice that the Appelant herein Hon. Mohamed Abdi Mahamud being dissatisfied with the judgement of the Court of Appeal in Nairobi in Election Petition Appeal No.2 of 2018 given on the 20th day of April 2018 intends to appeal to the Supreme Court of Kenya against the whole of the said judgement,” his latest appeal notice reads in part.

His election was first voided on January 12 after Justice Alfred Mabeya found that his academic papers were not proper and the poll was not conducted according to the law.

Mr. Abdi then sought intervention from the Court of Appeal which upheld his ouster on Friday morning.
