The Kwale gubernatorial elections were marred with discrepancies while Azimio agents were locked out.

A petitioner challenging Fatuma Achani’s victory on a United  Democratic Alliance [UDA] ticket in the August 9 general election told the court the election exercise was not above board.

Dziwe Zuma was being crossed examined on the first day of the hearing of a petition to seek to nullify Fauma’s victory over his closest political rival with a difference of 5,700 votes.

He told high court Judge Francis Gikonyo Fatuma had garnered 59,674 votes while Prof Hamisi  Boga garnered 53,972 votes which he said did not reflect the wishes of  Kwale voters.

“The results were twisted to favor her against Boga,” he told the court.

The petitioner told the court Fatuma took advantage of the level of illeteracy of voters at Kinango constituency polling stations.

Dziwe, who was represented by counsel Davis Mikwa, caused laughter when he told the counsel cross examining him that he is a standard three drop out and had asked the exercise to be carried out using the Kiswahili language.

He said the witnesses lined up to testify will demonstrate that the gubernatorial election carried out by the IEBC was not free and fair or transparent.  

He said this was the reason why he sought to prove to the court that Fatuma never won the election in a free and fair contest.

The petioner insisted there were massive discrepancies in two constituencies.
