Nakuru gubernatorial candidate Susan Kihika is still not off the hook after a petitioner filed a complaint with the IEBC seeking to block her candidature.
In the new hurdle, the petitioner, Joseph Kimani Njuguna wrote to IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati to block Kihika's bid claiming the senator is not a Kenyan citizen.
Njuguna says Kihika allegedly renounced her Kenyan citizenship in 2003 to acquire the United States of America citizenship.
"Having lost her Kenya citizenship, the said Susan Wakahura Kihika was required under section 10 of the Citizenship and Immigration Act Cap 172 of the laws of Kenya to apply in the prescribed manner to regain citizenship of Kenya," the petition read.
"Section 8(4) of the Citizenship and Immigration Act makes it an offence for a duo citizen who fails to disclose his/her other citizenship in the prescribed manners."
According to the petitioner, Kihika's bid is against the Constitution.
"I, therefore, request that the said Susan Wakahura Kihika be barred from contesting the upcoming general election of August 2022 in the position of Governor Nakuru County," wrote Njuguna.
