KOT Reacts After IEBC Declares Mariga Fit To Vie In Kibra

Wafula Chebukati, IEBC Chairman

Yesterday, MacDonald Mariga Wanyama was declared fit to vie for the Kibra Member of National Assembly seat on a Jubilee Ticket.

That came after a series of setbacks which culminated in Mariga being suspended for not being a registered voter among other serious issues.

Mariga later showed that he is indeed a registered voter, however, illegally registered past the registration date required before an election is conducted.

His lawyers however managed to convince IEBC that registration is continuous.

One Twitter user put it thus, ‘IEBC: The house of Illegality without blinking’.

Here are some of those comments we sampled on how Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) felt about Mariga’s candidature:
