The Political Parties Dispute Tribunal has nullified the nomination of John Mbadi as the ODM parliamentary candidate for Suba constituency.

The Kyalo Mbobu led tribunal has further ordered Wiper to undertake  a repeat poll in Machakos within 48 hours.

While delivering his ruling Mbobu said  Ndeti was irregularly nominated by the Wiper party on the 30th of April considering that the nominations were carried out in contempt of a court order that had stopped the exercise on the material day.
