BY SAM ALFAN.Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua can breathe a sigh of relief after the court suspended preparations for another election in the county.

“There shall be a stay of execution against the Judgment and Decree of 8 June 2018 pending the hearing and determination
of the case” ordered Judges.

The Supreme Court has suspended the preparations for elections in the position.

The Court of Appeal nullified Governor Mutua’s election on June 8 after his rival Wavinya Ndeti appealed a High Court ruling that had upheld his August 8, 2017 elections win.

The apex court issued the stay orders that will remain in force until the matter is heard and determined.

“Conservatory order restrains the first respondent (IEBC) from announcing or conducting gubernatorial elections in Machakos,” the court said.

The top court also issued orders preventing the Machakos Speaker from assuming the office of the Governor until the appeal is determined.
