Solomon Gichira

Presidential Candidate, Solomon Gichira has asked for the cancellation of the August 8 poll.

Gichira, who is running as an independent candidate said that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) was overseeing an unconstitutional electoral process. He went further and asked for the resignation of Chairman, Wafula Chebukati and Ezra Chiloba.

Mr Gichira asked that a new team be set up and elections held in two years.

Speaking in Nairobi, Solomon accused the IEBC of acting in favour of some candidates.

”We are not sure if there is anything left to go wrong in the preparation of this year’s election process because everything that has been done is wrong.”

His running mate, Kelly Watima asked for a constitutional referendum that will separate the registration of voters, management of the voter register.

”The referee has no good faith and putting the country at a very dangerous place. IEBC should be stripped off some of its functions,” Mr Watima said.

The two also called for Chebukati’s arrest sighting that he defied a court order that demanded he accept their nomination papers.

Solomon will be going up against Jubilee’s Uhuru Kenyatta, NASA’s Raila Odinga among others.
