Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission chairman Wafula Chebukati has sent a letter to Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho making announcement on the Commission's withdrawal from the 2022 election preparedness team.
Chebukati has said that the commission decided to make this step as the preparedness team is going against the Independence of the Commission.
He claimed that the commission should be independent in preparation of the coming general election and no other body should interfer with it's mandate.
Some politicians affiliated with United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party have been against Chief Justice Martha Koome's involvement in the team with claims that it will affect the decision she will make in case there will be after election cases.
However, the Chief Justice has been firm on remaining a member of the team.
