Trade CS Moses Kuria’s younger brother now wants to withdraw an election petition against the Member of Parliament for Juja Constituency George Koimburi Ndung’u.
Aloise Kinyanjui Kuria through lawyer Geoffrey Omenke had filed the petition on November 29,2022 to challenge the victory of Koimburi.
He has sought permission from the court to withdraw the petition saying that a consent was entered between him and the respondents in the suit.
The respondents were Koimburi, IEBC and Juja Constituency returning office.
“The cohesion for the people of Juja to allow for healing of losing side and development are some of the grounds as to why I want to withdraw this petition,” added Aloise.
He wanted a court to set a date for the hearing of her application to withdraw the suit.
The matter was filed at the High Court Kiambu before Judge Roselyn Wendo.
The businessman made the application for withdrawal after reaching consent with Koimburi of the UDA party who won the Juja parliamentary seat after garnering 39,413 votes.
“The petitioner applies for leave to withdraw the petition upon consent was entered between the petitioner and the respondents,” said Omenke in court documents.
