John Kiguru was charged with making a false entry in contravention to the Elections Act at Kiiri polling station on October 26.
Elections prosecutor Mutuma Mwereru told the Kandara court that Kiguru unlawfully entered 440 presidential votes garnered by Uhuru Kenyatta a Japheth Kaluyu's in Form 34A. The court also heard that the presiding officer had reasonable cause to believe the entry was wrong.
Kiguru did not take plea before senior resident magistrate Manuela Kinyanjui as the case was deferred to Murang'a courts.
The magistrate noted he committed an electoral offence and that the court had no jurisdiction over it.
"The file will be transfered to Murang'a law courts, where there is an electoral court, for plea-taking and trial," Kinyanjui said.
Kiguru was apprehended on Monday after IEBC lodged a complaint against him and is being held at Kandara police station.
