Cherera Reveals Who She Consulted Before Resigning as CJ Koome Orders The Dismissal of These Cases

Another Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) official, Juliana Cherera has resigned from the position of Vice Chairperson. In a statement dated December 5, Cherera confirmed her intension to leave office with immediate effect.

She has stated that her move was greatly geared by the recent happenings in the Electoral Commission where she was accused of being a rebel commissioner following her move to lead three other commissioners in disowning President William Ruto's election victory back in August.

She has informed that her decision was arrived after extensive consultations with her family and lawyers. This comes after her fellow Commissioner Justus Nyang'aya also quit office.

“After careful consideration of the current events at the commission and with consultation with my family and lawyers, I accept that my stay at the commission is no longer tenable and therefore choose to vacate," Cherera said.

On other news, the Judiciary Service Commission through Chief Justice Martha Koome has announced that pending cases filed at Nairobi Law Courts through the Rent Restriction Tribunal between the year 1991 and 2017 should be dismissed before the end of this month.

“All advocates and litigants should take notice that the tribunal intents to dismiss pending matters filed in Nairobi between 1991 and 2017,” the notice from The Judiciary read in part.
