Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has been listed as an interested party in the case. Kuto was elected KMJA president on December 11, 2021, for a two-year term having served as secretary general.
His term was to expire in December, but he was eligible for re-election. He says KMJA council called for applications from anyone interested in running for different positions.
Kuto applied to run for KMJA president and when the list of nine candidates came out, he was the only presidential candidate.
