BY SAM ALFAN.

Starehe Mp Charles Kanyi Njagua wants the court to order IEBC to declare results without the results from the four Nyanza Counties.

In a certificate of urgency filed at the Mililani law court the legislator claims that the repeat election to be held tomorrow in the four counties-Migori,Homabay,Kisumu and Siaya Counties will lead to a confusion on the issue of when the seven days upon which a declaration of the results ought to be made.

It is Njagua, arguments that by insisting on conducting the elections in the four counties where voters have openly indicated that they shall not participate in the voting and instead thwart the same, IEBC threatens to violate his rights and the rights of other voters.

He avers that there is a real danger and possibility that the same intentional situation may reoccur tomorrow and land the entire county into crisis.

In the same court, an SDA church member Hesbon Omollo has also moved to the High Court seeking to stop the poll, saying that it was wrong to reschedule it on a Sabbath day.

He argued that holding elections on that day would disrupt their worship and church activities and thereby violate their constitutional right and freedoms of worship.

“I am apprehensive that the political climate in the four counties is tense with a high likelihood of violent chaos that will potentially cause deaths, injuries, shedding of blood and destruction of property. This would have the effect of desecrating a Sabbath, a day that the SDA faithful hold dear,” Mr Omollo said.

Justice John Mativo directed the two matters be mentioned on Monday to address him on issue of jurisdiction
