Muranga Woman Representative Sabina Chege has moved to court to stop investigations against her for breaching the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) code of conduct.

Chege appeared before the Code of Conduct Enforcement committee a week ago over claims she made in Vihiga County suggesting that Jubilee rigged the 2017 polls.

Justice Anthony Mrima certified her case as urgent and directed her to serve IEBC with the court documents ahead of the hearing on February 23.

The legislator wants the court to suspend the ongoing proceedings where she is charged with uttering sentiments breaching the electoral code of conduct.

She wants the court to issue conservatory orders suspending the ongoing unlawful proceedings commenced by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

The legislator also wants the court to issue prohibitory order against any future or similar proceedings by the IEBC against her, over the same matter.

“The court be pleased to declare that any acts done in contravention of the Constitution and the consequential legislation deriving legitimacy from the constitution offend the Supremacy of the Constitution and are thus invalid,” she said. Sabina said.

The MP further wants to be paid damages by IEBC claiming the commission violated her constitutional rights.
