Outgoing IEBC commissioners have requested the President to Establish a Commission of Inquiry into what happened at the Bomas of Kenya during the release of the 2022 General Election outcome.
IEBC boss, Wafula Chebukati, speaking during their last day in office, pointed out members of the National Security Advisory Council whom he accused of plotting to interfere with the whole process. This, according to him, was an attempt to illegitimate the will of the people.
He later presided over the launch of the Post-election Evaluation Report auditing the 2022 Elections.
According to the chair, the inquiry is going to be a major tool in ensuring the independence of the electoral body and in addition, helps to curb the incidence of abuse of power.
"The outcome of the inquiry we believe will bolster the independence of the commission and make sure it maintains the stature contemplated in the constitution. It will also enable a future election environment devoid of harassment, intimidation, profiling, and harm of commission staff while discharging their duties," he said.
