IEBC clears two aspirants to vie in Othaya by-election

02 April 2014, 08:04 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Tuesday cleared two candidates to vie for the Othaya Constituency parliamentary seat in a by-election set for 29 April.

The two, Mary Wambui and her political rival Peter Gichuki King’ara were issued with clearance certificates at CDF hall in Othaya town.

King’ara was the first to be given the certificate in the morning while Wambui arrived at the hall in the afternoon for clearance.

Wambui was accompanied by a group of MPs including Nairobi County Woman Representative Rachael Shebesh, TNA secretary General Onyango Oloo among others.

The candidates were cleared following a brief motion with the IEBC’s officials led by Commissioner Timothy Lentangule.

Both candidates submitted their national identity cards, passport sized photographs, integrity certificates and academic credentials.

They also handed in political parties’ membership certificates, nomination certificates from the respective party to participate in the elections among other documents as required by law.

Wambui is defending her seat on a TNA party ticket while King’ara will hit the road on a Democratic Party (DP) ticket.

The candidates were also required to state their professions with Wambui stating that she was a farmer while King’ara said he was a lawyer.

After handing over their papers they held meetings at Othaya stadium ready for the campaigns which are scheduled to kickoff on April 2 to April 27, 2014.

King’ara’s campaign schedule was found to be much longer, exceeding the required time by the commission.

IEBC commissioner Timothy Lentangule stated that the commission will have a meeting with all candidates to deliberate on campaigns rules and harmonize the fixtures.
