, NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 9 – A day after the IEBC tribunal nullified her nomination to vie as Machakos County Governor on a Wiper ticket, Wavinya Ndeti now wants the decision set aside.
Under a certificate of urgency in court, Ndeti is also asking the court to issue orders prohibiting the polls body from implementing the resolution.
Also sought by the politician through Otieno Ogola & Company Advocates, is an order compelling IEBC to include her name as Wiper’s candidate for the position of Machakos Governor.
Ndeti wants the orders sought granted on grounds that the decision was accentuated with ulterior political considerations in a manner that defeats the right to fair administrative action.
“In arriving at the unlawful decision the polls body did not adhere to principals of the Supreme law on provisions on membership to a political party,” she argues.
The Wafula Chebukati-led tribunal ruled Thursday that Ndeti cannot contest the gubernatorial elections on a Wiper ticket after it found she is belongs to another party.
The panel found the politician is still a member of Chama Cha Uzalendo (CCU) and her alleged defection to Wiper was not made on time.
