Kuria declared fit to contest in Gatundu by TNA

01 July 2014, 15:58 William Korir

Nairobi - Moses Kuria has been declared fit to run for the Gatundu South parliamentary seat by The National Alliance TNA following a tribunal to probe his nomination.

The activist turned politician won last week's nomination by beating Wanjiku Ngugi in the min-poll.

He won by 8,343 to 6,685 votes garnered by Mrs Ngugi, wife to former MP Joseph Nyumu who died of a heart attack.

Mrs Ngugi though had complained of an irregular win by Kuria, claiming manipulation of results, bribery and assault.

The tribunal formed though, ruled Tuesday that Mrs Ngugi had failed to provide enough evidence to show that indeed she was hard done by in the poll.

" There was not enough evidence provided to prove that there were malpractices in the poll and thus the tribunal finds Mr Kuria's win lawful, the tribunal said.

A nomination under TNA in the area is basically a ticket to parliament, with party leader President Uhuru Kenyatta coming from the area.
