Case Filed in Court to Block IEBC from Clearing Joho for Re-Election
A man has filed a case in court seeking to have Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho disqualified from seeking re-election.
Abdalla Juma says Joho’s academic qualifications do not meet the threshold required by the constitution for a gubernatorial candidate and therefore wants the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to bar him from running.
Joho recently having admitted he scored D- in the KCSE. Abdalla says this invalidates the degree Joho obtained in Uganda, because a minimum grade of C+ is required to be for admission into university. The petitioner says John degree was obtained fraudulently and should not be recognized by the IEBC.
