DISMISSED AT HIGH COURT, APPEALS
Oparanya moved to the High Court in Kakamega to challenge the case in 2013. The court granted orders staying proceedings of the assault case pending determination of the petition. It later dismissed the petition with costs, saying it lacked merit. In August, the Court of Appeal dismissed his petition seeking orders to stop the case. Waka was a supporter of Oparanya’s rival. In June Oparanya was charged in a Kakamega court with incitement to violence.
