Nairobi - Businesswoman Mary Wambui is free to contest the Othaya parliamentary seat after a court struck out a petition seeking to challenge her eligibility.
According to Daily Nation, High Court judge David Majanja said the court has no jurisdiction to entertain an application seeking to block a person from presenting himself or herself to the electorate.
Justice Majanja allowed a preliminary objection brought by Ms Wambui seeking to dismiss the application.
