Names Of Rigathi Gachagua, Aisha Jumwa And Oscar Sudi Submitted To EACC By IEBC For Investigation

Running Mate to deputy president William Ruto Rigathi Gachagua has been dealt a major blow after his name and many others were submitted to the IEBC and DCI for investigations. The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has said that those whose names have been submitted have pending cases of corruption and may not be able to participate in the elections.

IEBC had earlier said that those with pending cases were legible to vie for the elective posts but a new order by the court has said that anyone who has a case of corruption or impeachement is not legible to hold any public office whatsoever.

Chief Justice Martha Koome has sent a message to Kenyans informing them that any aspirant with a pending case will have to be cleared by the court before vying for the position they are eying.

“You remain impeached until that impeachment is lifted. When you are sentenced, you are sentenced until the sentence is set aside,” Koome said.

Some of the top aspirants whose names have been forwarded to the EACC and DCI include; Rigathi Gachagua, Aisha Jumwa, Oscar Sudi, John Waluke, Karungo wa Thangwa among many others. Follow the page for more news updates daily.
