Kamukunji MP Simon Mbugua has lost his seat after the High Court established that the results used to declare him winner were compromised. Lady Justice Mary Ang'awa on Thursday ruled that the results were irregularly obtained, and were compiled from electoral documents collected from polling stations long after the December 27, 2007 elections. Interestingly, it was another High Court Judge, Justice Joseph Nyamu, now Court of Appeal judge, who had forced the defunct Electoral Commission of Kenya (ECK) to declare a winner in the constituency, even after the electoral body had cancelled the polls saying that electoral documents had been destroyed in chaos that erupted at the polling centres as vote tallying was continuing. On Thursday, Justice Ang’awa said the declaration of Mbugua, as the winner in the election was invalid.
