Voter wants Jubilee kicked out of Kajiado by election
09 March 2015, 18:09
Nairobi - A voter has gone to court to stop the candidacy of Jubilee Alliance Party JAP Kajiado Central by election candidate Patrick Tutui.
The voter, applied at the High Court in Nairobi Monday to have the case listened to urgently as the election takes place March 16, Monday next week.
Ntusero Naimaua Tiyie wants to stop the participation of Patrick Tutui under JAP in the
upcoming by-election, saying that the party cannot be able to field a candidate in the by election without violating the law.
According to Ntusero, JAP is not aptly registered as provided for under the Political Parties Act
2011 and cannot thus sponsor any candidate.
Justice Isaac Lenaola was the judge in-charge of the case.
Ntusero says that the process used by JAP and the Registrar of Political Parties was flawed and that the
name, office bearers, party symbol and physical address of Jubilee
Alliance Party are not registered properly and thus amount to abuse of the law.
He is further seeking an order to halt JAP, the Registrar of Political
Parties and Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission from receiving
Tutui’s certificate of nomination to vie for the by-election.
Justice Lenaola directed that the case be heard Wednesday after all the parties have been served with the suit papers.
