Addressing journalists on Friday about the matter, Jubilee Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju said they have put elaborate measures in place to ensure that only deserving candidates get a nomination party certificate.

For any candidate who has an appeal lodged with the party to get a certificate, he or she must undergo a “very thorough” process according to Tuju.

The Party has set up an Appeals Tribunal which will work for 24 hours.

The Party had more than 8, 000 aspirants in over 20, 000 polling stations. Tuju said that having 93 appeals out of the 8, 000 aspirants was equivalent to percent which is fine.

Top of the appeals is that of Starehe Constituency where Charles Kanyi (Jaguar) has challenged the outcome of results.

He says that he was rigged out by incumbent MP Maina Kamanda who allegedly scooped slightly over 10, 000 votes while Jaguar managed over 8, 000 votes.
