Homa Bay Governor Cyprian Awiti is set know his fate in an election petition that he filed at the Supreme Court.

The suit is challenging the judgment of the High court and Court of Appeal that both nullified his August 8, 2017 election.

A three bench judge at the Court of Appeal upheld the nullification of his re-election by High Court Judge Justice Joseph Karanja on February 20, 2018.

The poll petition was filed by former Kasipul MP Oyugi Magwanga in September 2017.

Justices Philip Waki, Fatuma Sichale and Otieno Odek upheld the judgment of the High court on July 19, 2018 over election malpractices.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court led by Chief Justice David Maraga will deliver its verdict on Awiti’s petition.

Magwanga and Homa Bay Deputy Governor Hamilton Orata have urged residents to maintain peace ahead of the ruling later today.
