After Juliana Cherera, the Commissioner of the Independent Electrol and Boundary Commission (IEBC), resigned as a result of pressure from some of Ruto's allies, the Vice Chair seat remained open. Additionally, Commissioners Francis Wanderi and Julius Nyang'anya resigned, leaving just Commissioner Irene Masit from Cherera four to remain in her position despite the gross misconduct and legal violations during the general election of last year. Just a few days before the August poll, the three—Juliana Cherera, Francis Wanderi, and Julius Nyang'anya—were chosen by the then-President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The three had only been in their positions for a little under three months when they decided to leave. The good news for them is that, despite their resignation, they will still be paid their salary. According to the contract they signed, Cherera, Wanderi, and Nyang'anya might be on the payroll for the ensuing six years. In the office, Cherera Four signed a six-year contract that will expire in 2028, immediately following the general election of 2027. They might still be paid under this even though they weren't working in the office. The taxpayers will pay millions of dollars for this.
