Three Mount Kenya Residents Out To Save Cherera And Her Colleagues

Three Meru County residents; Godfrey Kinoti, Joshua Mwirigi, and Philemon Munjuri, have moved to court to block the Ouster of embattled IEBC Commissioners Juliana Cherera, Justus Nyang’aya, Wamderi, and Masit.

They filled a petition at the Meru High seeking to block the implementation of the special gazette no. 14890 of December 2, 2022, which announced the appointment of Justice Aggrey Muchelule's tribunal by Presiden Ruto.

The three also want the court to block the implementation of the report of the National Assembly's Justice and Legal Committee on the petitions for removal from office of the four commissioners.

Judge Edward Murithi sitting at the Court has since certified the petition urgent and ordered the three to serve the National Assembly, the tribunal and the Attorney General who they have listed as the first, second, and third respondents in their petition.

Through their lawyer Mugambi Kiogora, the three argue that the ongoing process against the four commissioners was an unconstitutional as they are protected from liability for decisions taken in good faith while in office and were being unjustly persecuted.
