Here's The Huge Amount of Money Cherera 4 Could be Paid by The Govt Even After Resigning From Office

It has come to light that the resignations of commissioners Francis Wanderi and Justus Nyang'aya, as well as former IEBC Vice-chair Juliana Cherera, may have cost the taxpayers millions of shillings.

According to what transpired with the previous commission, led by Issack Hassan, the three may still receive their salaries for the remainder of their six-year term despite their resignation from IEBC.

Issack Hassan, the former chair of the electoral commission, was removed from office in 2016 following allegations of incompetence, political bias, and corruption. However, the IEBC team at the time was eventually compelled to quit.

The taxpayer paid Sh315.4 million for their resignation, according to new information.

This is because Issack Hassan and the other commissioners had a clause in their appointment contracts that said that if they left office earlier, they would be paid for the rest of their terms. The commissioners received salaries of Sh35 million on average.

The money, which included salary and gratuity payments, was intended to protect them from future earnings loss.

It now appears that the three commissioners who disowned Ruto's victory could allegedly take home more money than what Hassan's team was paid if Cherera and her team had signed a clause similar to that of Hassan's team.

However, according to a local newspaper, it is not yet clear whether the Cherera team had a clause requiring them to receive their future salary after being fired.

They would have been compensated for the remainder of their terms even though they had resigned if they had signed such a clause into their contracts.
