Ruling Jubilee Party has now been enjoined in a case in which three voters want poll body IEBC stopped from conducting fresh presidential elections on October 17th as announced on Monday.

High Court judge John Mativo has directed petitioners Brian Asin, Ben Wanasakaami and Kevin Olwanga to serve respondents in the case and appear for a hearing next week on Wednesday.

The trio argues IEBC failed to effectively serve Kenyans hence should not supervise elections, and in particular repeat of the presidential elections after the Supreme Court nullified the August 8 presidential poll.

In the petition, the three voters argue the Supreme Court found IEBC led by Wafula Chebukati guilty of violating the Constitution and want the eight top bosses declared unfit to hold public office.

The IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati, Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba and the six IEBC Commissioners have been named as respondents in the case.
