Taking to his social media pages, the senior council noted poll agencies are important bodies in any country and are indicators of democracy, however in Kenya, he claimed that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has become seasonal.
The Orange Democratic Movement party governor predicted that with the trend, future Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commissioners will have turf times
"Politics aside the stability and independence of an electoral body is an important indicator of the state of democracy in any country." He posted on his social media pages.
"IEBC has become transactional & seasonal. There will be other seasons with different crops of leaders. Tragic fate awaits future commissioners." Orengo added.
This comes shortly after Juliana Cherera resigned as the IEBC Commissioner just days after President William Ruto suspended her alongside her three colleagues.
