This comes even after an application by the the High Court judgment that allowed Dr. Aukot onto the ballot paper was declined by Justice John Mativo.

“I do not wish to over emphasize on the issue of stay,” Machari indicated.

On Wednesday, Justice Mativo ruled that Dr. Aukot should be included in the repeat election slated for October 26th 2017.

The High Court further directed the IEBC to amend the gazette notice and include him as a candidate while ruling that all candidates who participated in the nullified presidential election qualify to run in the fresh election.

Kenyatta’s decision to appeal High Court’s ruling comes as a surprise considering his main rival in the Presidential contest,Raila Odinga,has pulled out of the race.Meaning he faces little competition from Ekuku Aukot or any other candidate included by the IEBC to face him on October 26th.
