IEBC tribunal clears Mariga to run in Kibra by-election

The electoral commission's Disputes Resolution Tribunal has cleared former Harambee Stars midfielder McDonald Mariga to vie in the Kibra Constituency by-election. The nomination of the Jubilee's candidate for the November 7 mini poll was invalidated by the electoral agency last Tuesday because his details were missing from the voters roll of 2017.

 
 

Wafula Chebukati, chairman of Independent Elections and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), announced on Monday that Mariga is eligible to vie for the MP's seat that fell vacant following the death of Ken Okoth in July. Mr Chebukati said the returning officer who had blocked the football star did not take into account the updated register from Starehe Constituency.

REQUIREMENTS

The legal team representing Mr Mariga, led by Elisha Ongoya, had called on the committee to remedy the error and allow the complainant to take part in the mini poll.
