As the country heads to electioneering period, political players are busy traversing the country in a bid to sell their agenda and popularize their ambitions ahead if the much awaited august general election.

Today, the Kakamega High Court has decided that Senator Cleophas Malala will be included in the Gazette as one of the nominees of Kakamega gubernatorial race.

The courts allow the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to register his name, he will be among six others who want to take over from outgoing district commissioner Wycliffe Oparanya.

Judge Patrick Otieno also dismissed an opposition party petition seeking the dismissal of a case questioning the validity of Malala's education documents.

Justice Otieno said a decision would be made to meet the election deadlines.

This comes after he rejected an election proposal, demanding that the court reject the application of two Kakamega voters. Kakamega race is hotly contested as Azimio's candidate ain't a pushover.
