Victory for Wavinya Ndeti as court quashes IEBC decision to block her contest for Machakos Governorship

BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,21ST JUNE 2017-Machakos gubernatorial aspirant on Wiper Party ticket Wavinya Ndeti can now breadth easy after the high Court  Wednesday 21st June quashed decision by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) dispute resolution committee to block  her  from contesting for Machakos governorship.
The committee had defended its decision to bar Wavinya Ndeti from vying arguing that she employed political mischief, which was hatched by the Wiper Party to circumvent party resignation laws, as she did not qualify to contest under the party.
Wavinya  on her part had insisted  that she had followed the law, and ensured she was in Wiper Party’s list before the deadline set by IEBC, which is the main point of argument at the High Court.
Lawyer  representing the commission Paul Nyamondi,  told Justice George Odunga that the aspirant based her membership to Wiper through a coalition agreement with Chama cha Uzalendo (CCU) dated April 24 this year.

High Court has however ruled  in her favour saying  she is eligible to run for Machakos governor seat on the current party which is Wiper democratic movement . The decision by the court now draws    a battle line between Wavinya and Machakos    incumbent governor Dr Alfred Mutua who will be defending his seat on Maendeleo Chap Chap party.
