Independent Electoral and boundaries commission has given Jubilee party candidate Mc Donald Mariga a go ahead arguing that he is a duly registered voter.
The committee chaired by chairman Wafula Chebukati rectified the register to be updated.
Mariga is said to have registered in Kariokor, Starehe constituency.
