Controversial lawyer Miguna Miguna has noted huge differences between his voters' card and that of embattled Jubilee Party candidate for Kibra parliamentary by-elections Macdonald Mariga.
In a tweet on Wednesday morning, the exiled lawyer posted the two cards and highlighted some of the differences he saw.
"To the left is my @IEBCKenya Acknowledgment Card issued in 2017. To the right is Mariga's @IEBCKenya Acknowledgement Card. I note two distinct differences between the two cards. Mine has "GPK" to the bottom left. Mariga's number has a "- 17." Maybe the @IEBCKenya can explain," he said.
The lawyer was reacting after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) disqualified Mariga's candidature in the Kibra by elections.
Looking at the two cards, one can clearly see the huge differences noted by the Canadian barrister.
On Tuesday, the electoral commission, when scrutinizing Mariga, found out that his details were missing on the voters' register of 2017.
According to the body, this meant Mariga is not a voter thus cannot be allowed to vie in any electoral post in the country.
His disqualification has raised questions with a number of Jubilee Party leaders coming out to accuse their opponents of doing all they can to disqualify Mariga.
They, Jubilee Party leaders noted that this is not the end of the road as they vowed to appeal against this action.
Here are the two cards:
