2017 KENYA ELECTIONS

NAIROBI, Kenya, May 28 – The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission on Sunday turned away Independent Presidential aspirant Joseph Nyagah for presenting a banker’s cheque in excess of the required Sh200,000 nomination fee.

It also noted that his newly named running mate did not present a signed code of conduct as required.

When turning Nyagah away, Chebukati did however give him the opportunity to seek clearance once again on Monday when five other candidates are scheduled to appear before the Commission.

Later Nyagah joked that it was a public relations stunt to once again put him in the spotlight. “If they had given us another five minutes, we’d have remedied the situation,” Nyagah said on a more serious note.
