Nairobi - Former Youth Development boss Gor Semelang'o will not vie in the Mathare by-election following a High Court ruling that dismissed his application to have his name included in the ballot papers.
In her ruling, High Court Judge Mumbi Ngugi said Semelang'o could not take part in the by-election because he was still in office six months to the by-election, The Standard reports.
The constitution requires one to quit public office six months prior to an election.
