JUST IN: Reprieve For KKA Senator as High Court Gives Nod on His Gubernatorial Bid

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision is almost ready to print the ballot papers which will see Kenyans choose their preferred candidates for the various seats come August 9th.

Some candidates have had to face some challenges as their candidature has been widely disputed by sections of the electorate on various grounds including that of not having the requisite academic qualifications.

One of the politicians that has been facing a hurdle is Kakamega County Senator, Cleophas Malala who is vying for the Kakamega County Gubernatorial Seat in the August Elections on a United Democratic Alliance party ticket affiliated with Kenya Kwanza.

A court petition that had sought to have the Senator barred from running in the August Elections has been lifted and he can now breath a sigh of relief.

According to reliable reports from a Kakamega Court this afternoon, the High Court has lifted an order that sought to bar Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision from gazetting his name in the August Elections.

Another United Democratic Alliance party Gubernatorial Aspirant in Nairobi County was facing the same hurdle but things appear to be in order now for them to continue with the campaigns.
