IEBC postpones Mathare by-election

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has pushed the Mathare by-election to Monday, August 11, 2014.

This follows an order by the High Court for the IEBC to include former Kasarani MP William Omondi’s name on the ballot paper as a contestant in the by-election.

The by-election was initially scheduled for Thursday, August 7, 2014.

However, by-elections for Gatundu South constituency and Kibiri county assembly ward will proceed as earlier scheduled on Thursday, August 7, 2014.
