Cyrus Jirongo has vowed to fight for his position in the presidential race.
He wants the high court to suspend its decision declaring him bankrupt.
Through his lawyer Kenneth Kiplagat, the former Lugari MP argues that President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto participated in the 2013 general elections despite their indictment for crimes against humanity at the ICC.
Justice Olga Sewe of the commercial division declared Jirongo bankrupt after finding him unable to pay debts amounting to Sh700 million.
Sewe said the politician’s inability to repay businessman Sammy Kogo was demonstrated.
The judge ordered an official receiver be appointed as trustee for Jirongo’s estate.
Kogo, through his eight companies, petitioned the court seeking bankruptcy orders against the politician.
