High court judge George Odunga has disqualified himself from hearing a dispute between the opposition and the electoral commission over audit of the voter register.  Justice George Odunga ruled that although the grounds advanced by IEBC seeking his disqualification were not sufficient; he acted on his own motion to transfer the case to justice Enock Chacha of the constitutional division. He explained that referring the matter to the CJ would have lengthen its determination yet IEBC was working under strict timelines. IEBC wanted Odunga to quit the case on grounds that he would deliver a similar decision to the ballot papers case.
