JUST IN: MPs Recommend Formation of Tribunal to Investigate 'Cherera 4' & Their Immediate Suspension

The Justice andLegal Affairs Committee (JLAC) of the National Assembly is today, 1st December 2022, presenting its report to the National Assembly on petitions against four Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners led by Vice Chair Juliana Cherera.

MPs have recommended the formation of a tribunal to investigate the 'Cherera Four' and their immediate suspension from IEBC.

According to parliament, a report by the investigating tribunal is to be considered by the house later today.

The four IEBC Commissioners have been on the spot since the declaration of the presidential results were announced by Chairman Wafula Chebukati following the August 9th polls.

The petitions against the four Commissioners sought their removal from IEBC on grounds of gross misconduct after they held a press conference to disown the results of the presidency.

However, Azimio la Umoja camp have been at the forefront of calling out the government over the move to remove the commisioners from office, linking it to the 2027 polls.
