IEBC Vice-Chairperson Juliana Cherera?"/>
Deputy IEBC Chair Juliana Cherera is pressing on MPs to do away with a case that has been presented to them to oust her together with her 3 colleagues.
Speaking during a special sitting to discuss the 3 cases presented in Parliament against them, Lawayer Apolo Mboya, has said there is no evidence against her that merits her removal.
Also, there has been an apparent mix-up of names. As read out, the petition is against "Juliana Cherere" and not Juliana Cherera who is the IEBC commissioner in question.
"There is no such a person in IEBC called Juliana Cherere, we have Juliana Cherera. So, the removal here is not about Juliana Cherera probably by the time they are making their submission, they'll tell us who that person is and of course we will not allow any amendments to this petition," the lawyer said.
"The petition seeking removal of an unknown person, Julina Cherere-there are no such officers by that name in IEBC."
The legislators backing Raila Odinga voiced preliminary objections, led by Junet Mohammed, stating that it was unlawful for the committee to consider a case that was already in court.
Also, Junet has made a motion to suspend the committee's deliberations. The committee has adjourned for a discussion of the commissioners' attorneys' initial objection.
Present at the hearing are ODM leader Raila Odinga and Narc-Kenya leader Martha Karua.
