Jubilee confirms Kajiado Central Appeal

24 March 2015, 15:40 William Korir

Nairobi - David Murathe, the Jubilee Alliance Party JAP vice chair, says the party will go to go to court over alleged malpractice in the Kajiado by-elections.

The party lost the recent poll by around 500 votes to the Orange Democratic Party ODM.

ODM's Elijah Memusi Kanchori garnered 16,008 votes to JAP's Patrick Tutui's 15,567 votes.

Initially, the JAP candidate had said that he would not appeal the result of the closely fought elections and that he would accept defeat.

However, according Murathe, the party will appeal the election loss seeing as they have enough evidence to cause an overturn of the results.

" We will contest the result. We have evidence and will go to court," he said.

" The election was close and the margin of victory small, meaning that any small irregularity will be pivotal," Murathe added.

Kigumo MP Jamleck Kamau who was amongst key electoral campaign chiefs said last week that the party will release a report detailing reasons for the failure but did not essentially say that an appeal was on the pipeline.
