The judge made the decision on grounds that Ngilari did not resign from office, in accordance with the constitution, The Nation reports.

As a result, Finitiri’s position as acting governor has been declared illegal.

The court ruling also stipulated that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should not conduct the bye-election scheduled for Saturday, October 11th.
