Three residents of Meru have gone to High court seeking to stop the tribunal formed to investigate four Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commissioners who protested during presidential election.
Philemon Kiogora, Godfrey Kinoti and Joshua Mwirigi, through their lawyer Kiogora Mugambi, have challenged the mandate given to the tribunal set up to investigate the conduct of the IEBC vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera and the other three Commissioners.
The four Commissioners were listed as interested parties in the petition before just Edward Muriithi.
The trio argued that in the event the tribunal was allowed to deal with the matter of the four who opposed president William Ruto's election.
The Petitioners are seeking to stop the tribunal from prosecuting deliberations contained in the recommendation of national assembly against the IEBC vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera and the other three Commissioners who are now suspended by president William Ruto.
It's now a matter of wait and see what happens in the coming days if the high court will agree with their Petition or not.
