Ex-mungiki leader Maina Njenga sues Uhuru party over nomination

Former Mungiki leader Maina Njenga has sued the electoral body and Jubilee party for refusing to accept his papers for nomination of the Laikipia Senatorial seat.

He claims the move infringes on his political right since he has paid Sh250,000 as requisite fee for registration and nomination.

Since he claims he was not given any reasons for the refusal, he therefore wants the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal to declare the decision null and void.

In his case documents, he claims he is a born-again Christian and believer in Jesus Christ.

He argues that Mungiki is a creation of government aimed at harassing youths within Central region.

Through Lawyer Evans Ondieki, Mr Maina says he has never participated in criminal or unlawful acts hence the refusal is an act of bad faith.

He accuses Jubilee party of willingly taking his monies for the said fees and then unreasonably rejecting his nomination documents.
