McDonald Mariga’s may not contest for the Kibra seat in the November 7 by-election after his name could not be found in the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) register of voters.
IEBC returning officer Beatrice Muli on Tuesday told Mariga to seek redress with the IEBC Disputes Resolution Board.
“We have invalidated Mariga’s nomination,” she said.
Muli said other documents presented to them were in order.
“Mine was to confirm that the aspirant meets requirements. I have verified and checked and I could not find his details. At this point my hands are tied,” she added.
Politician Khalwale said that it’s not true Mariga has never voted, “I have evidence that my candidate is a voter and has an election card number. This is very serious.”
