BY JOHN WERU,NAIROBI,21ST AUG 2017-Third Way alliance presidential candidate Dr Ekuru Aukot has applied to be enjoined in NASA’s petition challenging President Kenyatta’s re-election 11 days after conceding defeat.Ekuru had conceded defeat and asked NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga to also follow suit. Speaking during a press briefing at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi on August 10, Aukot said he was satisfied with the way the election was conducted and has seen nothing that can warrant disputing the presidential outcome.
“Our party has made peace with the system and we respect the final outcome. From our party, this election is considered over. Let us celebrate our diversity as a people. We will continue to advise the IEBC in the quest to conduct truly free and fair elections.”
However a week later he renegaded on his previous stand saying he had realized numerous mistake and errors committed by the election commission in conducting the elections a move that could have largely affected results credibility.
