Reuben Kigame: I wanted a fair Process that’s why I went to Court

“How can I thank God enough for the ruling on my case of exclusion from the ballot by IEBC and Wafula Chebukati. It is finally possible for me to be on the ballot. Long live Justice and may God bless all who have prayed for me.”

Those were the remarks by the presidential hopeful Reuben Kigame after the High Court on Monday, July 18, ordered the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission’s chairman Wafula Chebukati to include his name on the 2022 presidential ballot papers.

Justice Anthony Mrima faulted IEBC for locking Kigame out of the presidential race noting that the commission discriminated against the celebrated gospel singer and ordered it to reconsider its decision.

“I wanted a fair process from IEBC that is why I went to court and not extra special treatment because I’m blind.” Reuben Kigame said.

Reuben Kigame who is an independent presidential hopeful showered praises on High Court Justice Mrima for quashing IEBC’s decision to bar him from contesting for the Presidency.

“IEBC did not make the process of signature collection and verification easy for us because they didn’t provide braille of personal assistants,” Kigame said.

Kigame has insisted that he would go on with his campaigns despite clearance hurdles by the commission and that they do not care whether or not the presidential ballot papers have been printed.

“We are only following the high court’s ruling, and we are ready to present those who are willing to do things differently in politics and those who are committed to changing this country,” he said.

On May 30, IEBC locked out Kigame from the race for failing to meet the threshold as required and stipulated by the commission.
