Kenya’s High Court has today directed IEBC to amend its candidates list for the repeat polls and include Ekuro Aukot and also bared it [IEBC] from announcing Uhuru president elect.



A Kenyan High Court ruling has ordered the electoral commission to include Ekuru Aukot a Thirdway Alliance presidential candidate in the repeat presidential elections.

This comes a day after NASA, Raila Odinga and running mate pulled out of the race.

Justice John Mativo ruled that IEBC amends its gazette notice on the list of presidential candidates’ contesting the repeat polls by adding Mr Aukot to the list.

The gazette notice by the electoral commission included only Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta but Raila has since withdrawn.

 IEBC confirmed receiving the withdrawal letter and said they are seeking legal counsel on the way forward before communicating their final stand

With Ekuro Aukot now allowed to vie, Kenyan voters are  confused as they are not sure what lies ahead for the country and which way to go.
