What Was Happening Between Cherera And Chebukati Before Elections

It has now come to light that tensions existed between the group led by IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati and Cherera 4 even before the general election in August.

Evidence suggests that tensions between the outgoing and incoming commissioners were high even before the new commissioners rejected the findings announced by Chebukati, who had been in office for six years at that point, in August.

According to the evidence compiled by The Star, the acrimony between Chebukati and his former deputy was caused by their competing visions for the CEO role.

The same contentious dynamics that led to the rejection of President William Ruto's victory by one camp and the defense of his election by the other were also present during the selection of other top executives, like directors.

To disavow the presidential election results in August, Cherera brought along his three colleagues, Irene Masit, Justus Nyangaya, and Francis Wanderi.


However, there are some things that must be shared with the world. Because of the secrecy with which this phase has been dealt with, the four of us have chosen to wait here at the Serena Hotel rather than travel to Bomas, where the results will be disclosed, they explained.

Meanwhile, the opposing group led by Chebukati, Boya Molu, Abdi Guliye, and CEO Hussein Marjan has stood behind Ruto's victory and accused Cherera's group of trying to tamper with the results to give Raila a victory.
