Azimio la Umoja MPs demonstrating to the IEBC offices at the Anniversary towers in Nairobi on Monday morning have been locked out.
The legislators had demonstrated to the offices demanding to meet IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati over the interdiction of the Deputy IEBC CEO Ruth Kulundu.
the MPs were led by Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi but were disappointed after finding the gates to the Anniversary towers locked. They were forced to keep vigil outside the gate as their pleas to have the gate opened fell on deaf ears.
This comes just days after the Raila-allied MPs threatened that they would take unspecified action against Chairman Wafula Chebukati to compel him and other officers to abide by the law.
Kulundu was issued with a second show cause letter by IEBC CEO Marjan Hussein for allegedly playing an active role in aiding the operations of four commissioners who disputed the presidential election outcome where IEBC declared William Ruto winner in the state house race.
Nominated MP Sabina Chege pointed out that the move to interdict Kulundu was a witch-hunt choreographed by Chebukati’s wing in the commission for having assisted the four dissenting IEBC commissioners.
