The two sets of IEBC officials including other staff such as drivers are currently in a retreat to revisit on what happened during this year's general elections. It is in public domain that four commissioners led by Juliana Cherera, Irine Masit, Justus Nyang'aya and Francis Wanderi nearly caused a fracas after breaking from the group of the other commissioners.
During the retreat, journalists were not allowed inside the hall where the IEBC officials were conducting their event. The journalists remained outside but got information of what was happening inside after hearing booing. They asked some staff who revealed that Cherera and her team were being booed.
Majority of the officials didn't not agree with them by booing them while others clapped for them. Cherera cried foul that Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Wafula Chebukati didn't take any actions despite the fact that they were being booed.She adds that Mr Chebukati sat there comfortably watching them being harassed. Cherera confirmed that she was booed.
