All eyes on President Ruto After Thursday's Move by Committee Investigating Four IEBC Commissioners

The Justice and Legal Affairs committee has resolved that the four Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commissioners have committed serious offences and hence should be suspended by His Excellency the Head of State.

While giving the findings of the committee on Thursday morning, the chairperson of the committee who is the Tharaka member of Parliament Honourable Murugara George Gitonga.

"The House resolves that the report and the findings be sent to His Excellency the president who will form the tribunal to investigate the four..."part of the report by the chairperson of JLAC reads.

Watch the live event here:

He also noted that the president should suspend the four Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commissioners until the tribunal gives its final verdict.

This now leaves His Excellency the Head of State president William Ruto with the mandate of forming a tribunal that will investigate the four Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commissioners.

This comes even as President William Ruto was yesterday dragged into the petition seeking removal of four electoral commissioners on the day their lawyers threatened to move to court to stop MPs from hearing the cases.

A tweet by Ruto referring to the four as “rogue” became the subject of debate during yesterday’s hearings of their removal from office in a session that was skipped by Azimio-One Kenya lawmakers who were meant to sit in the committee.
