Wafula Chebukati, the chairman of the Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission (IEBC), revealed the identities of those who approached him in Bomas, Kenya, asking him to preside over the presidential election in favor of Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition.
According to Tuesday's publication by People Daily, Chebukati named four members of the National Security Advisory Council who intended to demand a rerun in his remarks during the launching of the post election evaluation report on Monday at the Nairobi Safari Park Hotel.
According to the allegation, Wafula Chebukati was visited by former police chief Hillary Mutyambai, solicitor general Kennedy Ogeto, principal administrative secretary at the president's office Kennedy Kihara, and LT. General Francis Ogolla to persuade him to temper the outcome of the election. Despite their pleas, Chebukati maintained his stance in conducting free and fair election. His declaration was made on January 16 during his final public meeting, following which he is anticipated to leave the IEBC office as their six-year term ends today.
Kenyans from all over the nation have publicly praised Chebukati for his selfless deed at Bomas of Kenya, and they appear to be happy with what he and the other IEBC commissioners accomplished.
He was strong and complied with court orders. He complied with the opposition's request to open the server. His leadership may be better, but I give him an 80 out of 100, said Nyeri resident Eunice Muthui to People Daily.
He conducted the commission and elections in an open and honest manner. He made the IEBC portal accessible to anyone, allowing even the media to conduct their own tallying, according to Peter Wangari from Nyeri.
