President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee Party on Thursday filed a contempt of court case against NASA leader Raila Odinga and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka at the Supreme Court.
In the suit, Jubilee, through its Secretary-General Raphael Tuju, says that Raila and Kalonzo have been in contempt of the court ruling that nullified the August 8th presidential election. Jubilee says the NASA leaders sent a letter to the IEBC declaring they have withdrawn from the October 26th repeat election but have refused to sign the statutory Form 24A to officially withdraw.
Jubilee also says NASA has obstructed the training of IEBC officials in the NASA strongholds, mainly in Nyanza. The suit specifically says Kisumu governor Anyang’ Nyong’o and his Siaya counterpart Cornel Rasanga have obstructed the IEBC from training staff for the upcoming repeat election.
