Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has been handed a new reprieve by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries commission after they handed him an ultimatum to resubmit his documents by 9 am on Sunday, May 29 if he still intends to be on the ballot for the August 9 general elections.
Supporters are now keeping close tabs on whether the Wiper party leader will be presenting his documents yet again or he will now shelve his presidential bid and decide to back Azimio La Umoja candidate Raila Odinga.
According to a letter from the IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati, the former Vice President had submitted a list of signatures from voters supporting his presidential bid in Pdf format instead of Excel format as required.
Chebukati further confirmed that he had requested all presidential candidates to submit the list of supporters in both hard copy and soft copy in Excel format and aspirants had been handed an extension of the deadline from May 15 to May 25.
However the Wiper party National Elections Board had issued a statement clarifying that they had complied and submitted the required documents and downplayed reports that Kalonzo had been disqualified from the race due to non-compliance.
