Nairobi - Daily Nation reports Jubilee coalition presidential aspirant Uhuru Kenyatta and running mate William Ruto may be allowed to contest the March 4 General Election, the electoral commission said on Thursday.
No candidates facing criminal charges will be denied nomination as long as they conform to the rules required of the elective posts that they are seeking, according to Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Issack Hassan.
In an exclusive interview with the Nation at his Anniversary Towers offices in Nairobi Hassan said the law says until those people are found guilty and that they have exhausted all avenues of appeal, they can still contest.
