Presidential aspirant Reuben Kigame has been barred from vying for the presidency by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
At the same time, Roots party Presidential aspirant George Wakackoyah has been turned away by the IEBC for failing to submit the minimum required signatures of supporters endorsing him for the presidency.
Wajackoyah has however been given until Thursday to comply with the requirement.
Kigame who presented his papers to the IEBC for approval confirmed on Monday at a press conference that he had been barred from the 2022 presidential contest.
According to Kigame, he received an email from Chebukati informing him of the decision to lock him out of the race.
He said he was told by IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati on Sunday at 10 pm that he had failed to meet the requirements for qualification.
Kigame's attempt to meet the IEBC chair on Monday was futile as he was not granted an audience.
"When I wanted to seek audience with the Chair and have a redress of this matter, security barred me from entering the Bomas of Kenya saying no aspirant was being allowed," he said.
Kigame says besides the signatures, he was asked to appear before Chebukati and table his documents of compliance which did not happen.
"I was pre-judged on the basis of signatures, which they did not receive and still lying in my car," he said.
