The electoral commission has rejected Jubilee’s nominee for the Kibra parliamentary race slated for November 7.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) said Tuesday evening that they cannot accept McDonald Mariga’s candidature because his details are missing in the voters’ register of 2017.

Following the announcement, Lang’ata MP Nickson Korir said they are going to appeal the decision at the party’s tribunal.
