Former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka will no doubt be the happiest man on earth on Friday if the Supreme Court orders for a by-election in Machakos County.  

Governor Alfred Mutua and his arch-rival Wiper Party's candidate Wavinya Ndeti, also former Kathiani MP, will know his political destiny as the Supreme Court decides on the August 8, 2017, Machakos gubernatorial race.   

Mutua has been a thorn in the flesh of Kalonzo since he crossed over from Wiper to form Maendeleo Chap Chap Movement.

He is considered one of the threats to Kalonzo’s presidential bid in 2022.

Mutua has maintained that he will go for the county's top seat in the next polls.

He claims that he won the seat fairly.

Mutua opines that his win mirrors the desires of the general population of Machakos. 

He had criticized the Court of Appeal for invalidating his win, contending that it's an instance of vote based system on preliminary. 

Mutua, through his attorney Kioko Kilukumi, conceded that there was a slight deviation in the counting procedure, yet kept up that it doesn't change the result of the race in any capacity.  

Kilukumi told the court that marking of the constituent structures doesn't change the outcomes. 

He pleaded with Chief Justice David Maraga and Justices Njoki Ndung' u, Isaac Lenaola, Mohamed Ibrahim and J.B. Ojwang to maintain his win. 

The court's decision will impact the locale's legislative issues. Success at the court will likewise energize Mutua as he prepares to become President 2022.
