Cherera's Legal Team Makes U-turn On Their Last Week Position Before Walking Out of JLAC Proceedings

Legal team of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera have made a u-tun on their last week's position before they stormed out of the proceedings held by the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee on petitions to oust her alongside other three commissioners.

The 4 petitions filed before JLAC seeks to remove Cherera, Justus Nyang'aya, Francis Wanderi and Irene Masit from their positions on what the petitioners termed as trying to subvert the will of Kenyans.

Last week, Cherera's team claimed that the JLAC did not have jurisdiction over the issue, after the committee chair George Gitoga ruled that the committee had jurisdiction, a move that made the lawyers and Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance Camp who were members of the committee walk out.

On Monday, the MPs led by Gitonga demanded that Cherera's lawyer Apollo Mboya comes clear on their position on jurisdiction before he was granted an audience.

Apollo told JLAC that they will abide by the Committee's ruling on jurisdiction, "The decision has been rendered and we are not going to raise any issue of jurisdiction further."
