New hurdle for MUTULA KILONZO jnr –AGNES NDETEI moves to court to block him from Makueni seatPolitics 04:46
Tuesday, July 23, 2013 - The Kenyan DAILY POST has learnt that former Kibwezi MP and NARC politician, Agnes Ndetei, has moved to court to challenge the nomination of Wiper Democratic Movement candidate for Makueni by –election, Mutula kilonzo jnr.
Ndetei’s lawyer, Agnes Mutinda, moved to the Court of Appeal to challenge a decision in which the High Court allowed Wiper to nominate a candidate after the expiry of deadline.
With the by –election scheduled for Friday, Ndetei filed the notice of appeal in Nairobi but was yet to file the appeal itself by Monday.
Ndetei through her lawyer, Alphonse Mutinda, is contending that the party should not have been allowed to participate in the by –election since it had initially nominated an unqualified candidate Kethi Kilonzo, who is Mutula Junior’s sister.
Under the Elections Act 2011, any party, which nominates an unqualified candidate, commits an electoral offence and is barred from participating in the elections.
