Sakaja Off The Hook Following IEBC's New Directive

Embattled Nairobi gubernatorial candidate Johnson Sakaja can now take a relieving breath after IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati disregarded a recently drafted letter by the commission for university education revoking the recognition of Sakaja's university degree for a second time.

What the implications of the letter would was a topic of discussion across both mainstream and social media. However, Chebukati has dismissed the letter on grounds that it's case was already determined by the disputes tribunal weeks ago.

The short duration to the August polls also informed Chebukati's decision where he pointed that the electoral agency intends to proceed with poll preparations including printing of ballot papers.

Chebukati's reassuring directive came just hours after a high court judge declined to stop IEBC from printing ballot papers until a case questioning the validity of Sakaja's candidature is completely solved.

Justice Anthony Mrima allowed the IEBC to continue with the printing process as the case equally proceeds.

"Given that steps have ready been taken for an expedited hearing for this matter, hence the order shall not be issued at this point," Read part of Justice Mrima's ruling.
