High Court judge has ruled that there is no evidence of graft that led to removal of aspirant from office thus cannot be blocked from contesting in the August polls.

Justice Rachel Ng'etich set aside IEBC's dispute resolution judgment that Karungo cannot be allowed to run for the seat since he had been removed from office as CEC in the Kiambu County government on graft allegations.
