Happiness Rocks Kenya Kwanza as Court Oders IEBC To Clears UDA Aspirant From Kiambu To Vie For Seat

The decision of the electoral commission to prevent Karungo Thang'wa from running for senator from Kiambu owing to charges of corruption was overruled by the High Court on Thursday.

Karungo was dismissed from his post as chief executive officer of the Kiambu County government due to allegations of corruption, but Justice Rachel Ng'etich overruled the IEBC's ruling in the issue.

Justice Ng'etich agreed with Karungo that there wasn't enough evidence of his corruption to warrant the removal of him from office.

There was "no cause," according to Justice Ng'etich, to stop Karungo from running for the Kiambu senate.

The judge gave Karungo permission to run for the office of Kiambu Senator and authorized the Kiambu County Returning Officer to do so.

The court also mandated that IEBC print Karungo's name on the ballots.

Due to his removal from his position as CEC for Youth under Ferdinand Waititu, Karungo was unable to run.

During the appeal, the candidate told the judge that the entire Waitutu government had been overthrown when Governor Nyoro assumed office.

He stated in court testimony that the IEBC made the wrong choice in denying Karungo authorization.
