Opposition leader Raila Odinga and Magarini MP Harrison Garama Kombe

Opposition leader Raila Odinga has suffered a blow after a high court on Friday nullified the election of Harrison Garama Kombe as Magarini MP.

The Malindi high court nullified his election following massive irregularities.

The court ruled that a by-election should be conducted following massive irregularities including voter stuffing, reduction, and interchanging or results in favour of the winner declared by IEBC.

Fresh mini-poll will be held.

UDA candidate Stanley Kenga had petitioned, challenging Garama's win.

Kombe won by a very small margin followed by Kenga.
