(KDRTV) – At least 10 lawmakers are facing a bleak future after the High Court on Wednesday nullified the election of Gatundu North MP Wanjiku Kibe.

Justice Weldon Korir, in his ruling, directed IEBC to conduct fresh elections after declaring the seat vacant. The judge made his ruling based on an argument from the petitioner that Kibe had tendered her name to Jubilee Party for nomination in 2017 while still serving as an MCA.

According to former MP Clement Waibara, the MP was not qualified to be a candidate when she was still an MCA with a monthly salary and all the other benefits and responsibilities accorded to that position.

Kibe was a Jubilee nominated MCA in the Kiambu County Assembly between 2013 and 2017.

She participated and won the Jubilee Party Primaries in 2017. However, she failed to resign as required by law since her term had not ended.
