A Nairobi resident has sought orders to stop IEBC from clearing Hassan Joho to defend his seat in the August 8 polls.
Abdalla Juma said the Mombasa Governor does not meet the requisite educational qualifications to hold the seat.
Joho’s academic background came under scrutiny following accusations that he forged his secondary examination results slip.
But Joho denied the claims and publicly declated that he was proud of his KCSE score as it was obtained under extreme conditions of hardwork and poverty. He also recorded a statement with the DCI in Mombasa.
Last week, EACC detectives went to Tom Mboya Primary School to obtain documents and information about Joho’s learning.
Joho and his supporters have accused the Jubilee administration of harassment through state apparatus.
KRA directed Stanbic Bank to freeze six accounts belonging to the Governor amid a probe into his tax returns.
