Things Get Messy As Kalonzo Exposes Ruto's Trick To Stay in Power Past 2027

Wiper party leader, Kalonzo Musyoka, accused President William Ruto of planning to win the 2027 polls by taking control of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

While speaking during a book launch in Machakos on Saturday, December 3, Kalonzo accused Ruto of supporting the purge against the four IEBC commissioners to instal other officers who would bow to his demands in the 2027 Presidential General Election.

While accusing him of dictatorship, the Azimio Principal indicated that Ruto's sustained attacks had forced commissioner Justice Nyang'aya to resign.

"Look at this trend of taking us back into the days of dictatorship. I saw one of the commissioners could not take it, he resigned," Kalonzo stated.

The former Vice President further argued that Ruto's decision to suspend commissioners Juliana Cherera, Nyang’aya, Irene Masit and Francis Wanderi undermined the electoral agency's independence.

"Are you preparing to run in 2027 and what type of election would it be if the electoral commission would be a one-man show?" Kalonzo wondered.
