Two days ago, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries commission released the names of presidential aspirants who had qualified the first phase of their shortlisting.
Notably, Kalonzo Musyoka's name was missing from the 16 names given out by IEBC. This took the nation by a quick surprise since Musyoka had done everything needed before deadline; picking running mate and submitting the signatures.
However, as required before any presidential aspirant is cleared, the former vice-president did not present the list of his supporters in the Microsoft Excel sheet. Furthermore, he did not satisfy IEBC demands of atleast 2000 signatures in 24 counties and neither did he printed all the copies of ID's required.
Through a letter to the Wiper party by Wafula Chebukati, they were instructed that they had been granted a grace period until today Sunday to submit details in the required format or else they will be disqualified completely.
However according to TUKO news, the party has since ignored this letter and have resolved to support Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate.
