How Keter’s latest tribulation was received on Twitter

The nullification of Alfred Keter’s election victory as Nandi Hills MP has attracted varied reactions from Kenyans on social media.

In what amounts to a challenging period in the vocal lawmaker’s controversial political career, Keter suddenly lost his seat on Thursday after Justice George Kimondo sitting at the High Court in Eldoret ruled that the August 8, 2017 elections in his constituency were not conducted in a free and fair environment.

Keter’s main political rival Bernard Kitur was the successful petitioner.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) declared Keter the winner of the August elections with 28,923 votes against Kitur’s 13,872.

This ruling comes barely a fortnight after the Keter pleaded not guilty to forgery charges preferred against him by the Central Bank of Kenya, leading to speculation that he would be a marked man.
