The High Court has cleared politician Wavinya Ndeti to vie for the Machakos governor seat.

An emotional Ndeti celebrated on Wednesday after Judge George Odunga ruled she is an eligible Wiper party candidate.

Odunga noted the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal decided she is a bonafide member of of the party led by NASA principal Kalonzo Musyoka.

He said the IEBC committee had no power to nullify the tribunal’s decision.

Wavinya will face off with Governor Alfred Mutua of Maendeleo Chap Chap in the August 8 general election.
