The High Court in Eldoret has annulled the election of Nandi Hills Member of Parliament Alfred Keter.
In his ruling, Justice George Kimondo said that the election was marred by malpractices and irregularities.
Judge Kimondo ruled that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) committed illegalities in the conduct of the poll and that the election was not held in a free and fair environment.
“Having scrutinized both evidence, I have noted illegalities committed by the second respondent during the said exercise, Further, the first respondent committed various electoral illegalities. I hereby order fresh elections to be conducted by the second respondent,” Justice Kimondo said in his ruling
IEBC declared Keter the winner of the election after garnering 28,923 votes against the petitioner, Bernard Kitur's 13,872. Kitur contested as an Independent candidate.
Keter becomes the second rebellious Jubilee MP to lose his seat after Marakwet East's Kangogo Bowen.
Elsewhere in Siaya, Ugenya MP Chris Karan of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has also had his election nullified by the High Court, citing malpractices.
In her ruling on Thursday, Justice Triphisa Wanjiku Cherere noted that the election was not conducted in a free and fair manner.
The nullification followed a petition by former Ugenya MP Dave Ochieng', who contested on the Movement for Democracy and Growth ticket.
Karan had been declared the winner of the election after garnering 23,765 votes against
Ochieng's 23,048 votes.
