KANU’s Salat slapped with 3-month sentence over party primaries

Nick Salat

KANU Secretary General Nick Salat has been sentenced to three months in prison for failing to obey the Political Party Dispute Tribunal orders.

The independence party had Friday been directed to carry out repeat nominations in Fafi Constituency, Garissa County – orders that they failed to execute.

The party had earlier been accused of failing to deliver free and fair primaries in the region, leading the tribunal to call for a repeat of the exercise.

Salah Yakub Farah on Tuesday sued the party together with its’ Secretary General Salat, arguing that Salat and the National Elections Board Chairman Edward Kivuvani had flouted the directive.

Ruling on Farah’s petition, the Kyalo Mbobu-led tribunal also gave Salat an option of paying a Ksh.200,000 fine and directed that the party carries out the exercise in the constituency within 12 hours.

The tribunal, in its ruling, said that since the party did not carry out free and fair nominations in the constituency, certificates issued in the exercise were null and void.

Fafi Constituency has 5 Wards namely: Bura, Dekaharia, Jarajila, Fafi and Nanighi.
