How Much UDA Aspirants Will Pay To File Complaints Challenging Nomination Results

The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) has issued guidelines on how aspirants aggrieved with nomination results can file their complaints.

This follows the conclusion of the nomination exercise that was held in at least 36 counties across the country.

Even though UDA party leader William Ruto described the exercise as a huge success, there have been numerous complaints about voter manipulation and rigging in a number of areas.

In Uasin Gishu, Senatorial aspirant Kipchumba Karori has claimed the results were doctored by his competitor Governor Jackson Mandago.

Mandago was declared the winner in the Senatorial contest after garnering 63,167 with Karori finishing second with a vote tally of 45,347. Broadcaster Robert Arap Kemei was third (23,957 votes).

But Karori says he will lodge a complaint about the conduct of the nomination, seeking a repeat in the Senatorial nomination.

It is also a similar case with the Moiben Member of Parliament (MP) race after over 10 aspirants claimed James Kibor who was allegedly issued with the nomination certificate was not the legitimate winner.

The aspirants say Kibor was at number four and did not deserve the ticket. They want a repeat poll.
