Kenya High Court judge Justice Mativo has ordered IEBC to include Thirdway Alliance presidential candidate Ekuru Aukot in the fresh October 26, 2017 Elections.
In regards to who should participate in the fresh elections, High Court has not made a ruling based on SCOK advisory on Fresh Presidential Elections- Yet this is the same advisory that Hon Raila Odinga relied on to withdraw from the race.
Justice Mativo: Supreme Court decision of Raila 2013 on what fresh elections means was an Obiter Dictum & doesn’t bind the High Court.
Justice Mativo: Since 60 days is not enough for nominations, then those who participated in nullified poll should qualify to run
This has thrown a new spanner for the fresh elections, As IEBC will have to re-gazette candidates.
Mutahi Ngunyi: Raila DID NOT WITHDRAW. It was a SICK JOKE. He did not SIGN form 24A. Had to WAIT for AUKOT ruling before signing 24A. Raila is in the RACE!
