Ugenya MP Christopher Karan has said he is not worried about a petition filed by former MP David Ochieng seeking to nullify his election.

Karan said has not been served with the petition.

“I have not been around. But there is no big deal, since I defeated him fair and square,” Karan told the Star on the phone yesterday.

His remarks come barely a week after Ochieng’s lawyers on Monday filed what they termed a watertight case at the Siaya High Court, seeking to annul Karan’s election.

Ochieng sued Karan, the Ugenya returning officer and the IEBC for election malpractices. He said at least 180 witnesses have already sworn affidavits in the case.

Ochieng also said violence marred the poll.
