Siaya County Governor Hon James Orengo has today reported that he foresees a scenario where future IEBC commissioners will face it rough working for the electoral agency now that it is evident that the agency has been receiving direction from the government.
Taking to his twitter account handle minutes after IEBC Vice Chair Hon Juliana Cherera wrote to Ruto informing him or her intention to resign from office, Orengo claimed that a time is coming when there will be a different crop of leaders.
"Politics aside the stability and independence of an electoral body is an important indicator of the state of democracy in any country. IEBC has become transactional & seasonal. There will be other seasons with different crops of leaders. Tragic fate awaits future commissioners," He Said.
