Maalim who had cited cases of voter bribery and improper transmission of results will pay Sh6 million for filing the petition.

The money will be split equally between the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and the Majority Leader at the National Assembly.

“It is a good day for the people of Garissa and I want to thank all the people who prayed for us. It has been proven beyond reasonable doubt that the will of the Garissa has been upheld by the court,” said Duale after the ruling.

Kenyans took to social media to respond to this, most happy that the case was all over but some still not coming to terms with the fact that Maalim had lost again.

Here is a sample of the responses on social media:

Just like Farah Maalim, we never get to realize whats about to hit our lives 1hr later in :-(( https://t.co/5Y3MI0DvEt— #Ungovernable? (@KenyanTaxPayer) February 27, 2018

Farah Maalim is one of the confused politicians in this country, it’s even hard to pinpoint what he stands for. Aden Duale is not an angel but I would better stick with a devil( Duale) with a stand than an angel( Farah Maalim)without a stand..— La Revolt (@PhilRevolt) February 27, 2018

Farah Maalim been talking on TV shows of how NASA is over & WIPER will be out soon, little did he tell her he had his own battles. In any case, enigmatic Raila would not have gone to campaign for him even if he won the petition, would have lost terribly again !!!— #Ungovernable? (@KenyanTaxPayer) February 27, 2018
