IEBC to blame for my delayed clearance – Miguna

Nairobi’s gubernatorial aspirant Miguna Miguna has blamed the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for the technical hitch that had him provisionally barred from contesting in the August elections.

Miguna was on Thursday turned away by IEBC officials at Moi Sports Centre Kasarani after he presented 2,000 signatures in image form instead of an Excel format. He was asked to rectify the anomaly and return by Friday for clearance.

An angry Miguna soon after confronted journalists assembled at the venue, blaming them for sending ‘fake news alert’ that his nomination papers had been rejected.

Hours after the episode, he took to his Twitter account to explain the events and who was to shoulder the blame. Sample this.
