"I want to express my gratitude to Hon Rigathi Gachagua and Deputy President William Ruto for resisting calls to take my post. I appreciate the IEBC following court rulings, and I will vote "Karungo wa Thang'wa stated
The decision by the electoral commission to bar Karungo Thang'wa from running in the Kiambu Senator race on the basis of impeachment due to corruption was recently overturned by the High Court.
According to reports, he was disqualified from running on the grounds that he had been removed from office due to some cases of corruption when serving as CEC for Youth under former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu.
