Case summary
Court held that the standard of appeal required in election petitions was to the satisfaction of court. Court added that satisfaction of court went hand in hand with balance of probabilities. Court added that were the allegations of electoral offences were from both parties, independent evidence was required, which was missing. Court was not convinced that the applicant had proved the allegations of voter bribery to the satisfaction of court and that the trial judge was right in dismissing the petition for the same reason. Court accordingly dismissed the appeal.
