Ekuru Aukot to Withdraw from the Presidential Race



Minutes after High Court allowed former Presidential candidate, Ekuru Aukot’s name to be included in the list of those to contest for presidential repeat poll, it’s emerging that Aukot will withdraw from the race anyway.

Sources close to the lawyer reveal that the presidential candidate will withdraw citing IEBC’s failure to heed to NASA’s demands for minimum reforms. The lawyer is also expected to join NASA in pushing IEBC to do major reforms before the next election.

Ekuru, who was granted permission by Justice Mativo to run for president, has already hinted he isn’t interested to contest again, which leaves IEBC with no other option but to announce fresh elections.
