Presidential aspirant Mwangi wa Iria under his party Usawa kwa wote has protested after his name was removed from the presidential aspirant’s list by the election body.
“Even people who failed to meet requirements are in the schedule, but my name has been removed. No election will be conducted if I will not contest,” he threatened.
Wa Iria insisted that he met all the requirements, including bringing signatures from supporters in 24 counties as required and the commission even acknowledged receipt adding that he won’t allow election to be rigged this early.
The Murang’a Governor stated that IEBC officials had acknowledged receipt of all his documents on May 25 only for him to miss out on the Presidential nomination register.
“They have deliberately removed my name today,” Wa Iria alleged
Mwangi wa Iria was to face Azimio flag-bearer Raila Odinga and UDA lead William Ruto amongst many other aspirants.
