The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has cleared football star McDonald Mariga to vie for the Kibra Parliamentary seat on a Jubilee Party ticket.

IEBC, during a Monday press conference led by Chairman Wafula Chebukati, stated that the former soccer ace is indeed a registered voter.

Mariga had filed an appeal challenging the IEBC decision to invalidate his candidature from the by-election set for November 7, 2019, adding that his disqualification was “improper, null and void.”

“The complainant is duly registered as a voter. The respondent’s decision of September 10, 2019 declining the nomination of the complainant on account that he was not registered as a voter is hereby set aside,” said Mr. Chebukati.

“The respondent is hereby ordered to process the complainant’s application for nomination as the Jubilee Party’s candidate for the Kibra constituency by-election slated for Nov 7, 2019 in accordance with the law. Each party shall bear their own costs.”
