Sammy Prisa Leshore has been gazetted to replace Isaac Mwaura as member to the Senate representing persons with disabilities.
In a Gazette Notice dated May 10, 2021, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission said the deleted nominee (Isaac Mwaura) stands disqualified.
This is despite an interim court order that was issued on Tuesday evening against his removal.
The Milimani High Court had directed that the respondents be restrained from implementing or further acting on the judgment of the Political Parties Tribunal pending hearing and determination of the motion.
“I am also convinced that there is need to grant interim orders. Consequently, the motion dated May 11, 2021, is fixed for interpartes hearing on May 24, 2021,” Justice Joseph Sergon said.
Additionally, the judge issued an order for stay of further implementation of the Gazette Notice number 4597 Vol CXX11-102 dated and issued on May 10 by the third respondent.
Mwaura has been in a protracted battle with the Jubilee party, the culmination of it — his expulsion.
