Judge throws out petition case

Daily Nation - SAM KIPLAGATP - September 18 2009

The High Court has dismissed a petition challenging the election of Hussein Mohammed Abdikadir as the Mandera Central MP.

Dismissing the petition on Friday, Lady Justice Roselyn Wendoh said that the MP, who is also the chairman of Parliamentary committee on Administration of Justice and Legal Affairs, was not properly served with the suit papers.

According to the Judge, the petitioner, Mr Adan Mohamed did not serve Mr Abdikadir personally with the papers as required by law. She said that Mr Mohamed only left the suit papers at the law firm where Mr Abdikadir practiced from before he became a Member of Parliament.

In the ruling, Justice Wendoh added that Mr Mohamed did not conduct due diligence before serving the MP. Again, said the Judge, a process server sent to serve the suit papers on Abdikadir, was not qualified.
