The petitions were filed in courts after the 2017 general elections and they have been heard and determined in the high court and the court of appeal before landing in the apex court.
The court in a public notice signed by the Deputy Registrar of the Supreme Court Daniel Ole Keiwau indicates that the 1st petition to be dispensed off will be that of Machakos Governor.
Mutua’s poll win was nullified by the Court of Appeal after his arch-rival Wavinya Ndeti contested a High Court decision in February upholding the election of the second-term governor.
