Lawyer for Nyando petioner has no certificate

  • BY JEFF OTIENO.

Kisumu High court witnessed a rare drama this week when it emerged that a lawyerrepresenting Nyando election petitioner Jared Okello doesn’t have a practicing certificate.Okello went to court early April on alleged grounds that the incumbent Mp Fred Outas victory was shrouded with election malpractices.

Pascal Odhiambo the lawyer victim was conspicuously absent when the presiding judgeAggrey Muchelule ruled that all the applications done by him during the trial period be srtuck off with costs.However both parties will brace for 45 minutes each of submission before Muchelule on 8th August next month.

Its imperative to note that the lawyer who filed the case Bruce Odeny is different from Pascal Odhiambo who has been arguing the case. The press could not however immediately establish whether the duo who are based in Kisumu are from the same law firm.
