Wajackoya,61 was among aspirants who appeared IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati on Monday, at the Bomas of Kenya.

The lawyer was turned away by IEBC for failing to submit the required number of signatures.

Wajackoya had a full list of supporters from 17 counties out of the required 24.

He is for the second time seeking the country’s top seat after quiting the presidential race months before the general election.

One of his major agenda if elected President is legalizing weed.

Presidential aspirants Reuben Kigame and Mwangi Wa Iria were also locked out of the race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.  

The nine-day clearance exercise by the Independent and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) started countrywide on Sunday.
