Supreme Court frees Wetangula
17 March 2015, 18:37
Nairobi - The Supreme Court has granted CORD co- principal Moses Wetangula permission to contest an electoral post following an earlier ruling stopping him from doing so.
The court ruled Tuesday that Wetangula can run for political office in future because prior electoral offences that had been presented as cases to bar him were not conclusive.
The Supreme Court has further directed that the registrar of political parties present a report on
the alleged election offences including voter bribery to the Director
of Public Prosecutions DPP and Independent Electoral and Boundaries
Commission IEBC for further investigations.
Wetangula is the current Bungoma Senator who survived a by election after his prior election as Senator in the 2013 General Election was annulled by the High Court.
Wetangula has already announced that he will contest for the presidency in the 2017 General Elections.
