NAIROBI   – The Kenyan election board should include Ekuru Aukot, who polled less than 1 percent in presidential elections in August, on the ballot in the event of a re-run, the High Court ruled on Wednesday.

“I find nothing to bar the petitioner from contesting the fresh election,” said Justice John Mativo.

His ruling means President Uhuru Kenyatta may still have a challenger on Oct. 26, when the re-run is scheduled despite the withdrawal of top opposition candidate on Raila Odinga over allegations of bias.(Reuters)
