The contention over the seat of Nairobi Governor has taken another twist as Ex-Nairobi County Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe requested the court to establish whether his resignation was confirmed.

Igathe while accepting his resignation in January 2018 said that the County failed to recognize his resignation and should be determined by the court.

“My letter of resignation was not acknowledged by the Speaker of National Assembly”, Igathe said in an affidavit while responding to a Nairobi voter, Patrick Kiiru who is challenging the Nairobi Gubernatorial by-election.

“The legal effect of the failure to formalize or recognize my resignation and the failure by Nairobi county or any public institution to conduct any legal formalities to conclude resignation is a matter to be determined by the court”, He added.

According to Kiiru, IEBC has no right to call a by-election to fill the vacancy in the office of Governor especially when there is a Deputy Governor in place.

“Resignation of Igathe was never communicated to the IEBC nor was any gazette noticed published announcing a vacancy in the Office of the Deputy Governor,” Kiiru said in his court documents.
