Another presidential candidate joins NASA's election petition

The candidate said the election was unfair and praised Raila for his petition.

In his application at the Supreme Court, Michael Wainaina who ran as an independent candidate in the August polls, said he will be prejudiced if locked out of the petition.

He described the elections as "unfair" and praised the NASA coalition led by their leader Raila Odinga for filing the petition at the Supreme Court.

NASA has disputed the results and challenged President Uhuru Kenyatta’s win at the country's highest court.

The former Literature lecturer at Kenyatta University however insisted he is still not affiliated to any political party.

Wainaina's move brings the number of presidential candidates who have sought to be enjoined in the NASA case to two.

Last week, Thirdway Alliance's Ekuru Aukot applied to be enjoined in the petition.

In the application, Dr Aukot alleged that IEBC admitted fraudulent and unstamped forms 34As in the final tally.

In a sworn affidavit, he indicated that in some instances, up to 11 agents signed the forms yet there were only 8 presidential candidates in the race.

Dr Aukot disclosed that some forms were signed by agents from parties including Narc, PDR, Kanu, Federal Party of Kenya (FKP), Labour Party, Agano and PNU, yet these parties had no presidential candidates.

He further alleged that some of the agents indicated that they were representing independent candidates but failed to indicate who these candidates were.
