BY NT CORRESPONDENT.

Appeal by opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) on election back up system failed to kick off for the second time after two court of appeal judges disqualified themselves from hearing the appeal.

Appellate judges Agnes Murgor and Gatembu Kairu cited various reasons as to why they cannot sit in the bench to hear the appeal.

Judge Kairu said that he is related to senior counsel Paul Muite while Murgor said that she has searched herself and is not able to hear and determine the appeal by the opposition.

Yesterday the hearing failed to kick off after Justice Kihara Kariuki disqualified himself on grounds that he had sat in another case-Ballot papers appeal filed by the same parties.

In the case NASA is challenging a high court ruling that ruled that IEBC had credible back up system in the 8th August elections.

NASA wants the court of appeal to overturn the decision saying court erred in law when it failed to stop IEBC from using a manual back-up system in case technology fails during the polls.
