"You Will Not Convince Kenyans Otherwise, Stop It, " Manyora Tells Ruto Over His Latest Move

The issue of kicking out the the 4 commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) have attracted mixed reactions across the political space with the leaders allied to the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance claiming that President William Ruto is out on a revenge mission.

The four who are the IEBC chairperson Juliana Cherera, Justus Nyang'aya, Irene Masit and Francis Wanderi are starring at four petitions before the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee, with the petitioners seeking their removal.

The petitioners argued that the decision by the 4 commissioners to distance themselves from presidential results announced by the IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati was a trial of subverting the will of Kenyans, and thus violating the constitution.

The president taking to his Twitter account slammed the Azimio boss Raila Odinga, saying that the move the four was not politically motivated further terming the commissioners as rogue officials.

According to Political Observer Herman Manyora, President Ruto will not convince Kenyans otherwise that he is not trying to revenge, requesting him to stop the removal of the commissioners since he already got power.

"The president would know that those who get in power and set to revenge, end up losing. Revenge is for the weak, the strong let you watch. If indeed the commissioners tried to subvert the will of the people, Ruto should ignore them. There is no way he will convince Kenyans that it is not a revenge mission," argued Manyora
