As the Kiagu By-election draws nearer, parties are preparing in earnest to field to their candidates in a bid to clinch the seat. However, Moses Kuria's Chama Cha Kazi party has been dealt with a huge blow after the IEBC disqualified its candidate.
Moses Kuria posted in his official Facebook account "Today the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has disqualified Chama Cha Kazi's candidate for Kiagu By-election Milton Mwende Kabobo following a petition by South imenti United Democratic Alliance coordinator Salesio Mutuma Thuranira".
However, Chama Cha Kazi has been asked to field another candidate, something which didn't sit well with the vocal Mp. He went on "The party has been asked to submit a replacement candidate. We are dissatisfied with the decision and we will move to thing court First thing tomorrow to challenge the decision".
This development could see the rift between UDA and Moses Kuria widens even further. Despite championing for hustle movement, Moses Kuria could use this setback to dissociate fully from Deputy President's camp.
