The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party Disputes Resolution Committee has upset John Kihagi's success in the Naivasha parliamentary seat.

This is after the advisory group observed that the officeholder MP Jane Kihara got a vote more than her adversary, Kihagi.

In archives seen by the Standard, the advisory group expressed that Kihara secured 9,904 votes while Kihagi gathered 9,903 votes.

Eventually, the panel sees that as a Jane Wanjiru Kihara acquired the largest number of votes. In that capacity, she should have been announced as the legitimately named applicant, "read the record."

The board of trustees, hence, requested Kihagi to give a designation endorsement, recently introduced to him, to Jane Kihara.

In its discovery, the board understood that the count reported on April 14 did not show votes from Maua Primary School and Milimani Secondary School surveying stations. In the surveying stations, Kihara had collected 57 and 23 votes separately, while Kihangi got 35 and 16 votes individually.

The Committee tracks down that the inability to incorporate the consequences of Maua Primary School surveying station and Milimani Secondary School surveying station into the last count had a huge bearing on the ultimate result and rejects the declaration by Counsel for the first respondent (Kihagi) that their avoidance was irrelevant and made little difference to the end-product.

The Committee tracks down that when the outcomes from the previously mentioned surveying stations are added to the last count, which the Committee has affirmed to be 9852 decisions in favor of Kihagi and 9824 decisions in favor of Kihara, the outcome is that Kihagi gathered 9,903 votes to Kihara's 9904 votes."

Kihara accused her opponent of committing serious offenses, such as moving voting form materials to polling places rather than the designated party authorities, in her applications to the questions council.

Kihangi took control of the transportation of voting form materials due to the strategic difficulties they initially encountered, she explained.

Also, she blamed Kihangi for frightening and compromising citizens.

As per Kihara, the managing authorities at various surveying stations acted in breach of their authority obligation and were intrigued with Kihangi for reasons of giving an unnecessary benefit to him.
