IEBC puts off Kitutu Chache South parliamentary election
SEE ALSO :Punguza Mizigo officially deadIEBC decision was arrived at after it sought legal advice from a set of its lawyers. "We have resolved to postpone the Kitutu Chache South parliamentary elections to a later date," Kurgat told the Standard in Dubai where he is leading a delegation to inspect the printing of presidential ballot papers. The commission had asked Jubilee party to nominate a replacement of the late Mwamba but the President’s party delayed compelling the commission to make this decision. The late Mwamba perished on July 14 when a car he was traveling in was involved in a fatal accident along the Kisii-Kisumu road. The postponement now means that voters will wait for a little bit longer to pick their MP. Incumbent Richard Onyonka of Ford Kenya is facing ODM's Samuel Omwando among others.
