The supreme ourt on Friday overturned decisions of High Court and Court of Appeal nullifying the election of Wajir Governor Mohammed Abdi Mohamud.
The ruling was the outcome of a split vote with four judges ruling in the governor’s favour while two dissented.
It saw four out of the six-judge bench finding that the two lower courts wrongly assumed jurisdiction to rule on the governor’s academic papers.
Justices Mohammed Ibrahim, Jackton Ojwang, Njoki Ndungu and Smokin Wanjala overturned the ruling of the Appeal Court that voided the Wajir Governor’s poll win.
According to Abdullahi, Justice Ibrahim received the bribe through a member of parliament.
“On Monday I will write a confidential letter to the CJ and disclose to him which judges were bribed and how much money they got and by whom…one of the judges was bribed through a member of parliament and the money taken from the branch of a local bank in Eastleigh,” he added.
However, Chief Justice David Maraga and Justice Isaac Lenaola dissented on the ruling affirming that they ‘agree with the issue that a degree is a pre-requisite for one to view for governor seat.”
