CORD 'behind' Jubilee court case

11 March 2015, 22:31 William Korir

Nairobi - The CORD coalition is behind a case in which a voter is seeking the Jubilee Alliance Party JAP be kicked out of the upcoming Kajiado Central by election.

The voter Ntusero Naimaua has moved to the High court to stop JAP’s candidate Patrick Tutui from participating in the Monday March 16 by election.

He contends that the party was irregularly registered and that it will be illegal for Tutui to run for the by election on the party's banner.

However, JAP as well as the registrar of political parties and the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC state that everything is in order and that the petition is ill timed and has sinister motives.

The case will be decided Friday, with judge Isaac Lenaola set to look at whether JAP was indeed illegally constituted.

Their lawyer Ahmednasir Abdulahi stated that the case was mischievous and that it had no bearing at all in law other than seeking to discredit and kill the Jubilee momentum ahead of the poll.

" The application should be dismissed as it is an abuse of the court process; is frivolous, vexatious and brought in bad faith," he Abdulahi argued.

He continued that the petitioner had not explained which provision in the constitution had been violated when JAP nominated Tutui.

On the same matter, JAP candidate Tutui urged voters to stay put and not lose faith in his campaign and that he would be in the election come Monday.

" The case is a ploy by my competitors to divert attention from the fact that they are losing the election," he said.

Tutui together with ODM's Elijah Memusi are the front-runners for the election.
