The Independent Electoral Boundaries Commmision (IEBC ) disputes resolution committee has dismissed a petition by former Kitui East MP Kiema Kilonzo that challenged the nomination of Julius Malombe as Wiper’s candidate for Kitui Governor race.
Ambassador Kiema kilonzo through his Lawyer Eric Mutua, had told the committee that Malombe’s nomination was fraudulent.
Lawyer Mutua wanted the committee to revoke the nomination and order for fresh elections, arguing that his client was not notified of the time and date when the elections were conducted and only received a letter three hours after the exercise had started.
On his part, Malombe’s Lawyer Mansur Isha told the committee that Kiema is incompetent and should be dismissed. He stated that Kiema should have made a complaint to the returning officer or to Wiper Democratic Party.
The committee heard that Kilonzo, before complaining to IEBC, did not exhaust the internal political Party dispute resolution mechanisms. Last week ODM Boss endorsed Dr Malombe for kitui Top job.
On the same, Wiper boss HE Kalonzo Musyoka Urged those who are blocking Former kitui Governor Dr Malombe through court cases to stop it and allow him to campaign.
Kiema has indicated through his handlers that he will be moving to the high court to seek justice.
