Cherera Four savior? Three Mount Kenya residents are out to save the suspended IEBC commissioners

Three Meru residents have filed a lawsuit in an effort to prevent the tribunal established to look into the actions of four IEBC commissioners during the August elections from beginning its hearings.

They are asking the court to issue conservatory orders preventing the implementation of special gazette no. 14890, which announced President William Ruto's appointment of the tribunal on December 2, 202 2.

It is required that the petition for the resignation of IEBC commissioners Juliana Cherera, Francis Wanderi, Irene Masit, and Justus Nyang'aya be reviewed by the tribunal chaired by Appellate Judge Aggrey Muchelule.

Additionally, the petitioners want the court to grant a conservatory order postponing the implementation of the National Assembly's report on the petitions to remove the four commissioners from their positions.

Judge Edward Muriithi of the Meru High Court certified the petition brought by Mr. Philemon Munjuri, Mr. Godfrey Kinoti, and Mr. Joshua Mwirigi as urgent on Wednesday and set it for directions.

The petitioners, who have listed the National Assembly, the tribunal, and the Attorney General as their first, second, and third respondents, respectively, were also directed by the judge to serve them.
