Perpetua Mponjiwa and Eve Malenya ODM nomination court battle escalates

 

MCA Perpetua Mponjiwa

 

Since 2017 there has been an unending battle between ODM and Nairobi nominated MCA Perpetua Mponjiwa with ODM hindering efforts to have her sworn in by the county assembly, despite a new court order.


Efforts to have Ms Mponjiwa take the swear in as ODM nominated MCA have twice confirmed worthless.


The event was to happen in April 2019 and July this year with the party maintaining it only knows Ms Eve Malenya as its nominee.

Ms Malenya was de-registered from the IEBC nomination list last year following a successful court case by Ms Mponjiwa.


However, Ms Malenya inquired court orders to stop the swearing-in of Ms Mponjiwa.


Ms Malenya said that she was the appropriate person for nomination as MCA, asking the court to suspend the April 5, 2019 gazette notice on Ms Mponjiwa's swearing-in.


Ms Malenya claimed that Ms Mponjiwa contested as an independent candidate in the 2017 General Election and was therefore inappropriate to be nominated or elected.

ODM has now put an active attempt at the county assembly to stop any new effort to swear in Ms Mponjiwa.


However, the High Court published another order last month giving the assembly two weeks, up to November 1, to have Ms Mponjiwa sworn in.
