Lawyers for first and third respondents in the election petition case have described as ‘needless’, the petitioners’ demand for a meeting with audit firm, KPMG over the draft report to be presented to the court on Monday.
The petitioners want to rectify some anomalies KPMG found after auditing the pink sheets presented as evidence.
But speaking to Citi News
, a member of the legal team, Abraham Amaliba said the petitioners have had their chance to clear the air already.
“We are surprised at this because if a meeting just ended yesterday which is Friday; the respondents were there, the petitioners were there, their observers were there, the Registrar was there and his representatives, KPMG was there so what will be the basis for us to schedule for yet another meeting just after you’ve completed a meeting.”
According to him, KMPG has indicated that it will go ahead to present the report to the Supreme Court on Monday, June 24 when the court will resume the hearing of the Election Petition case.
