Diaspora to move to court over voting

28 November 2012, 12:13

United States of America - The Standard reports that, Kenyans living abroad were angered by the news that they will not be voting in the forthcoming elections despite numerous assurances in the past by government officials and IEBC that their constitutional right to vote will be safeguarded.

Upset Kenyans living in the US have instructed their lawyers in Kenya to move to court immediately to contest the decision, terming the pronouncement by Justice Minister Eugene Wamalwa as illegal, ill conceived and ill timed.

In an unprecedented reaction, that compares only to how they reacted following the eruption of clashes in Kenya soon after the bungled presidential elections in December, 2007, Kenyans living in the US were all united in condemning the move terming it draconian and vowed to oppose it.
