Candidates Present Papers In Mathare, Gatundu South

The handing over of the nomination papers will be done and tomorrow in both constituencies


The by election for both constituencies will be held on the 7th August 2014.


Mathare parliamentary seat fell vacant on May 23, 2014 after the Supreme Court upheld a decision by the Court of Appeal to nullify George Wanjohi’s election.


Stephen Kariuki, the closest challenger to Wanjohi had filed a petition to the Court of Appeal which was successful.


Voters in Gatundu South will also have a by-election to elect a new Member of National Assembly after the death of Joseph Ngugi Nyumu on May 21, 2014.
