IEBC vice chair Juliana Cherera officially resigned from her position on Monday after a lot of pressure from President William Ruto's government. This left the tribunal formed by president William Ruto to investigate the vice chair in a limbo as they were ready to unravel all her mistakes. The tribunal's fate now depends on the two remaining commissioners. Should they resign from office then the tribunal will be disbanded.
Trusted sources from the government have however revealed that there is a plan cooking among top government officials to go after Cherera and her three colleagues should they all resign. According to the informant who did not want to be made public Ruto has a plan to turn the tribunal into an independent inquiry committee to privately investigate what happened behind closed doors during the tallying process at the Bomas of Kenya.
According to the MP the committee will unveil the good and the bad that the four commissioners engaged in during their service in the electoral body.
