The former governor is among 12 independent candidates seeking to replace Mike Sonko.

This comes a week after IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati made it clear that the commission would not clear any candidate who had been previously impeached by the senate.

The latest move is a great reprieve for the governor who was impeached by the Kiambu County Assembly.
