I won fair and square, Starehe Member of Parliament Charles Kanyi Njagua has told the court.

Njagua also told the court that he won the election without manipulation as alleged by his bitter opponent Steve Mbogo.

While testifying in the election petition, Njagua told Justice Fred Ochieng  that the final votes tallied represented the will of Starehe voters.

The legislator disputed claims that voting went on in some polling stations when it was already dark despite the fact that that there was no light.

He also dismissed claims that some presiding officers were signing election forms before counting the votes.

He said that if there were any mistakes which he doubts there were, then they could be attributed to human errors.

Njagua said that the people voted him, he combed Starehe Constituency persuading voters to vote for him and that is how he emerged the winner with an overwhelming  majority.

Earlier, Mbogo had told the court that he was attacked and his agent stabbed.

He said he was denied entrance at some polling stations and claimed that there was massive ballot stuffing by Njagua.

He asked the court to order fresh elections for Starehe Parliamentary seat by IEBC.

Hearing continues Friday.
