Just In:Reprieve In Kenya Kwanza As Senate UDA Aspirant For Kiambu Is Cleared By High Court.

The election commission's decision to exclude Karungo Thang'wa from the campaign for the Kiambu Senate on the grounds of corruption-related impeachment was overturned by the High Court on Thursday(7/7/2022).

In light of Karungo's removal from his position as CEC in the Kiambu County government due to graft charges, Justice Rachel Ng'etich overturned the IEBC's dispute settlement decision that he is unable to seek for the position.

In agreement with Karungo, Justice Ng'etich stated that no court had received any evidence of corruption that would have called for the dismissal of this official.

Justice Ng'etich declared, "This court finds no cause to prohibit Karungo from running for the office of Kiambu senator."

Karungo must obtain a clearance certificate from the Kiambu County Returning Officer before he can run for office in that county.

The Kenya kwanza team had only Karungo as their candidate running under the UDA ticket. Its a reprieve to both Karungo and Ruto's team. We now await the decision by IEBC.
