Safina party presidential candidate Jimi Wanjigi, on Monday, June 6, was ousted by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for the presidency.
Wanjigi failed to provide a valid degree – one of the constitutional requirements for the highest office in the country.
The billionaire businessman had issued a letter indicating that he had completed his course and was due to graduate in December this year.
So far, only five candidates have met the IEBC’s high standards for the presidency in the next general election.
Wanjigi criticized IEBC President Wafula Chebukati, who accused him of being part of a system that required him to be excluded from the vote. He promised to take the case to court.
“I want to say clearly here that there is a conspiracy and there are people who do not want to see others in the polls, and you will not leave with this Mr. President, that is the country of law. a country that we follow the constitution, ”he said.
In a shocking turn of events, IEBC staff turned off Wanjigi’s microphone and demanded that he leave the permit room and make his statements elsewhere.
