IEBC Appeal Ruling - IEBC Wins- NASA Lose

IEBC Appeal Ruling - IEBC Wins- NASA Lose

Known to Kenyans as IEBC appeal, the Court of Appeal has overturned a High Court judgement blocking Al Ghurair of Dubai from printing presidential ballot papers. The second highest court in the land ruled that public participation is not a requirement in direct procurement, which was applied by the electoral commission in awarding the contract to Al Ghurair. Hence the High Court erred in granting orders on the grounds of public participation.

They also faulted the High Court for failing to appreciate that there was no time to award another tender.However, the appellate judges agreed with their High Court counterparts in rejecting claims that President Kenyatta met Al Ghurair officials and that he influenced the awarding of the tender.

The High Court, they said, was right in holding that newspaper cuttings were not sufficient to prove that the President met directors of the firm. Such articles remain hearsay unless the author appears in court and is interrogated on the authenticity of the article,” they said. Nasa, they said, should have also provided unmistakable evidence to prove that during the alleged meeting, the ballot printing tender was discussed.
