Jaffer Isaak Sora Kanu (pictured) is set to be interviewed at the KPV Radio during an online community discussion on Diaspora voting scheduled for January 5, 2012, 4pm (EST).Mr. Kanu, who is a member of the Kenya Diaspora Leadership Assembly (KDLA), filed a petition in the High Court soon after the IEBC announced that Kenyans in the Diaspora will not be voting.
On Monday December 31, 2012 the Diaspora case won a small victory when Judge Machanja was forced to disqualify himself from further hearing the case. Justice Machanja had presided over the previous Diaspora case which he dismissed on November 15th. The Diaspora is being represented by veteran human rights advocate, Dr. John Khaminwa.
A ruling is set to be made on the Diaspora case on January 11, 2013.
KDLA, which is the globally-elected Diaspora representative body has fully embraced and endorsed the present case.
