Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission is tasked with clearing candidates to vie for different political positions available according to the provision of the Kenyan constitution of 2010.
The court on Thursday made an order directing the IEBC Chairman to clear Karungo Thang'wa to vie for the position of Senator in Kiambu County in the next general elections. The court cites lacking evidence of involvement in graft by the Party in question after he was impeached as a Youth CEC.
This comes as big relief for the senate hopeful aspirant as this will present a perfect opportunity for him and his followers to actualize a dream of being on the ballot papers in the August 9th polls.
This directive by the court is coming on a day when IEBC leadership headed by Mr. Chebukati Wafula has announced receiving the first batch of ballot papers from Greece at JKIA. Mr. Chebukati Wafula had assured members of the public and political family of free, fair, and credible elections.
