Big Blow To Sonko As IEBC Releases New Statement Ahead Of August Elections

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chair Wafula Chebukati has seemed to slam the door of former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko's quest to ran for Mombasa governor.This is after the chairman declared that impeached governors will not be cleared.

Speaking yesterday in Diani ,Kwale county Chebukati said that despite court's decision that Sonko's fate lies with the IEBC , the commission will not review the cases it has already made decision on.

"The court will not revisit the decision which have already been made.After all ,those seeking clearance are already time barred"said Chebukati.

Chebukatu has said that although he had not read the judgement that referred the case to the commission because the court have no jurisdiction ,he was not going to preside over Sonko's case along with others because they were time-barred.

On Friday,judges had ruled that the court had no jurisdiction to hear the Sonko's and others and had referred them to IEBC.
