List Of Politicians Given Highest Compensation In Election Petitions

A total of 388 electoral petition cases have been filed so far in Kenyan Courts and a majority of the petitions were anchored on electronic result transmission failure. Many of the claims fielded in courts had no substantial evidence hence dismissal. A small fraction of the petitions managed to convince the judges to nullify elections in their respective counties, wards, and constituencies. Seven of the 98 petitions for MPs were nullified, 1 women rep out of 12 got her election nullified and a partly 3 out of 35 petitions for the gubernatorial seat went through…the remaining 80 cases were for the party nominees during the nomination stage.

The election petition losers were required to pay a hefty punitive amount to the latter; which means they were dealt a double blow and lost their money too in the process. The petition losers could collectively fork out at least kSh500 million in punitive costs by the time these petitions are over.

Here is a list of Kenyan leaders who were given the highest court compensations during the ongoing poll petitions.
