The Nandi County Senator Kiprotich Cherargei has reacted to the resignation of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission's Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera. Cherera penned her resignation letter on Monday morning, December 5. Cherera's resignation comes after Commissioner Justus Nyang'aya also resigned from the commission.
Among the dissenting commissioners, it's only Francis Wanderi and Irene Masit are remaining in the commission. The resignations comes days after President Ruto suspended the 4 commissioners.
But Senator Cherargei believes that the resignation of the commissioners should have already happened as he stated that it is long overdue.
Cherargei has further stated that resignation of Cherera and Nyang’aya has put Raila Odinga's demonstrations in limbo. Cherargei has further told the government to deny Raila Odinga police permit to conduct the protests.
"The resignation of IEBC commissioners vice chair Juliana Cherera and Ngang'aya is long overdue after putting the country in precipice of anarchy & has put Raila's demonstrations into limbo, confusion & political oblivion. The govt should deny him police permit because Kenyans need to work." Cherargei stated.
