Ekuru Aukot doubts IEBC’s ability to deliver credible election
Thirdway Alliance presidential candidate Dr Ekuru Aukot has no faith the current IEBC can deliver a free, fair and verifiable election.
Aukot who had a meeting with IEBC commissioners earlier Friday said IEBC still has a lot to do to deliver to Kenyans fair elections.
“Our meeting with IEBC now reveals that they have a lot to put straight if we are to have a smooth election,” said Aukot through his twitter handle.
Aukot, however, disagreed with IEBC’s decision to include all the eight presidential candidates in the ballot paper terming the move a fishing expedition.
He said Justice John Mativo’s orders on his case were very specific.
“Mativo’s orders in my case were very specific. IEBC are now going into a fishing expedition, we shall review,” said Ekuru.
He, however, dismissed allegations that the country is currently on a crisis and cautioned individuals against defining the destiny of Kenyans.
“I am disturbed by a false narrative that Kenya is on a crisis now. Individuals shouldn’t define our destiny as Kenyans.”
On Wednesday The High Court through Justice Mativo ordered IEBC to include Thirdway Alliance Party leader Ekuru Aukot in the ballot for the October 26 repeat presidential election just a day after the withdrawal of the NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
