Reprieve For Wiper & Sonko in Mombasa Gurbanatorial Race As Court Stops Printing of Ballot Papers

The race to this year's election is just some few days away.All aspirants are doing everything possible to ensure that they are elected.Both camps are outsmarting one another.Raila's camp is keen to make sure that it emerges the winner with a huge number of lawamakers and Governors.However,some usual battlegrounds seem slippery this time.Mombasa county is one of Raila's strongholds.The incumbent Governor Hassan Joho is a close ally of Raila Odinga.Joho has already bagged the Ministry of Lands in Azimio government.

The race to the top seat in the county has been stiff.Before suffering setbacks,Wiper's Mike Sonko had been leading in the opinion polls.Today,Sonko has got a big relief that may be detrimental to his opponents such as ODM's Abdulswamad Sharif Nassir and UDA's Hassan Omar.

The court has now barred IEBC from printing the Mombasa Governor ballot papers pending determination of a case filed by Mike Sonko.This comes at a time when Kalonzo has maintained that Mike Sonko's name must be on the ballot.Will Sonko's Gurbanatorial dream come to be true again?
