NASA, IEBC in another court showdown over ballot papers printing
The opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) coalition has filed a cross-appeal at the Court of Appeal seeking to have the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) appeal challenging the cancellation of presidential ballot papers tender awarded to Al Gurair printing firm dismissed.
NASA claims that the High Court Judges erred in law and fact in failing to appreciate the contextual circumstances of the case in their appraisal of the evidence of association between the Dubai-based firm and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
NASA lawyers argue that their appeal should be allowed on grounds that High Court Judges erred in finding that IEBC decision to award the tender to Al-Gurair for the printing of presidential ballot papers was not actuated by bias.
High Court Judges Joel Ngugi, George Odunga and John Mativo dismissed NASA’s argument that President Kenyatta’s relationship with Al- Ghurair Printing and Publishing Company influenced the award of the tender to the firm.
The case will be heard Friday, July 14 by the Court of Appeal.
