Two Kajiado East parliamentary aspirants move to court seeking fresh ODM nominations in the area


Two Kajiado East parliamentary aspirants George ole Kimiti and Bob Muchemio Njagi have moved before the Political Parties Dispute Resolution Tribunal (PPDRT) seeking fresh ODM nominations for the Kajiado East Constituency.

Njagi told the tribunal led by chair Kyalo Mbobu that the returning officer has not announced the results to date.
Lawyer Moses Owuor for the two parliamentary aspirants and three member of county assembly contestants Fredrick King’angir, Lydia Ngaira Odongo and Peter Atara said none Maasai voters were turned away at polling stations within Kitengela.
Mr Mbobu who is sitting with James Atemi and Abdi Hassan at the Milimani High Court heard that although no results were announced by the returning officer, the name of  Kakuta ole Maimai has been published in a section of the press as having won to fly the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket during the August 8 poll.
The five aspirants wondered where Mr Maimai got the results which have been published in the media.
“There was no transparency at all in the whole exercise that was dotted with glaring irregularities,” the tribunal heard.
The claimants told the three member tribunal that they have raised complaints with the national executive board of ODM on poll resolutions and no directives have been given.
They are asking the tribunal to nullify any poll results relayed to IEBC for Kajiado East until a fair nomination exercise has been conducted.
