Junet Hits Back at Ruto As He Alleges Why The Courts Are Issuing The Same Ruling on The Four Rogue IEBC Commissioners

Irene Masit and Francis Wanderi are the sole commissioners left at the tribunal's mercy after Juliana Cherera and Justus Nyang'aya resigned.

President William Ruto has received criticism from Suna East MP Junet Mohamed for urging Kenyans to use the legal system to settle some problems.

Junet expressed concern about how the courts have been handling cases involving four IEBC Commissioners who disowned results announced by IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati on Twitter after he appeared to dismiss the president's call.

According to Junet, it is illogical for courts to render the same decision in cases brought by all four IEBC commissioners.

"Mtukufu Rais today advised us to go to court if we are agrieved. I wish to inform him that FIVE cases were filled by lawyers of The Cherera group in different courts and all the judges in those courts gave the same date for the hearing. 14th of Dec. Who is micro-managing the courts?" Junet possed.

In a tweet on Monday, he responded to President William Ruto's appeal for Azimio to file a lawsuit rather than stage protests in reaction to the commissioners' removal process.

President William Ruto and Azimio are at odds with the four commissioners' dismissal from their positions, which they have dubbed punitive.

Irene Masit and Francis Wanderi are currently in the hands of a tribunal established by Ruto to decide their fate after vice chair Juliana Cherera and commissioner Justus Nyang'aya already resigned from their positions.
