Details Now Emerge On What Was Happening Between Chebukati, Cherera Long Before The August Poll

It's now emerging that there were problems between IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati's side and the Cherera 4 camp even before the August general election.

Details show that the old and new commissioners were having serious fights from immediately after they (new commissioners) came in, long before they disowned the results announced by Chebukati in August, who has been serving for six years.

The Star has established that Chebukati and his resigned deputy wanted different people to hold the CEO position, leading to a bitter fallout.

The same was the case during the picking of other top officers like directors, leading to rivalry that has now led to one side rejecting President William Ruto win and the other defending and standing by it.

After the August poll, Cherera carried with him his three colleagues Irene Masit, Justus Nyangaya and Francis Wanderi, to disown the presidential election results, alleging that they were not the actual ones.

"But some things need to be put out there. As you can see the four of us are here and not at Bomas where the results are going to be announced because of the opaque nature of how this phase has been handled,” they said at the Serena Hotel.

But the other side, which has Chebukati, Boya Molu, Abdi Guliye and CEO Hussein Marjan, has defended Ruto's win, accusing the Cherera's team of trying to moderate the results to rid Raila of another loss.
