Monday, May 9, 2022 –Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya is not qualified to deputize Raila Odinga.
Electoral and Boundaries Commission IEBC today Monday May 9 on Citizen Tv made the announcement indicating that the CS risk being blocked because he is still a civil servant.
IEBC Commissioner Prof Abdi Guliye hinted at disqualifying the CS not unless he officially quits office as it is required by law.
“One ought to have resigned if they intend to be in politics and if they are holding public office, they need to have done that six months to the General Election,” the commissioner stated.
Asked why they would punish someone who is not vying only selected by presidential candidates to be a running mate, Guliye observed that the rule of the law is clear.
“That rule applies to all and is not selective and if anyone intended to be in politics one should have made up their mind a long time ago. For IEBC, we will enforce the law as it is,” Guliye added.
He also took issue with Mike Sonko and Ferdinand Waititu’s candidature which he said might be struck off until the two former county boss clear their namea in court.
