There was drama yesterday at KICC after an independent presidential candidate by the name Solomon Gichira threatened to commit suicide. Photo below.
The IEBC told Gichira that he would not be cleared to vie for the presidency which led him to run towards a window at the sixth floor of anniversary towers.
The aspirant’s life was saved by two security guards manning the building who grabbed him before he could jump. Police said they will charge him for causing disturbance and destruction of property as he had broken the window of the building by kicking it during his attempt to jump
Among those disqualified is the only female presidential aspirant Nazlin Umar. Others are Muthiora Kariara, Japhet Kavinga, Stephen Owoko Oganga, David Munga, Erastus Nyamera, Peter Solomon Gichira, Michael Orenge and Peter Osotsi Odeng.
