Electrol and Boundaries Commission vice chair Juliana Cherera has made an about turn in a move likely to go against the stand of Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance leadership led by Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka.
After a long debate on jurisdiction of Justice and Legal Affairs Committee of the National Assembly in summoning the infamous "Opague Four" commissioners, The ODM party leader together with his Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka termed the move legal, adding that the process by the parliamentarians is beyond their jurisdiction. They urged the four commissioners not to appear before the JLAC.
However, according to reports by The Star, in a turn of events, the IEBC vice chair Juliana Cherera has turned around and obeyed the summon by the committee.
Through her lawyer Apollo Mboya, Cherera has said that on jurisdiction issue, she shall abide by the decision of the committee, in a move that would likely force the other three to appear or be seen as contemptuous to the proceedings.
The proceedings by the JLAC seeks to remove from office IEBC vice chair Juliana Cherera alongside commissioners Justus Nyang'aya, Irene Masir and Francis Wanderi following their resenting roles in the run-up to announcement of presidential results in August, 2022.
