4 IEBC Commissioners To Appear Before MPs Anytime From Now, Cherera To Be Represented By Her Lawyer

The four Commissioners of Kenya's independent electoral and boundary body (IEBC), sometimes known as the Cherera four, are in a pickle after contesting the August presidential election results that revealed Kenya Kwanza candidate William Ruto had won.

The justice and legal affairs committee of the national assembly has called the four commissioners to appear before them to present their case for why they should not be removed from office.

Vice Chair of the IEBC Juliana Cherera will be the first IEBC official to testify in front of lawmakers this morning. The wait is over; she has answered her call and emerged.

Juliana Cherera confirmed through a phone interview with The Star that she will not be testifying before the JLAC panel. She claims that she will, instead, be represented by an attorney.

She was formerly represented by prominent Kenyan attorney Dunstan Omari, however she did not name her new legal counsel. Kenyans, she suggested, should wait until this morning to find out who will speak on her behalf.

Irene Masit, another IEBC commissioner, would defend herself in front of MPs later that day.
