Four troubled IEBC commissioners should be suspended, and a tribunal should be established to look into their actions for possible grave constitutional violations, according to the National Assembly's recommendation.
The National Assembly's Justice and Legal Affairs Committee (JLAC) has recommended the expulsion of the four IEBC commissioners, Juliana Cherera, Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi, and Justus Nyangaya, after considering four petitions.
The Republican Liberty Party, Rev. David Nthumbi, Geoffrey Lagat, and Steve Owour submitted four petitions, and the George Murugara-led Committee determined that all four had sufficient justification to support the establishment of a tribunal to look into the actions of the four commissioners.
Murugara claimed that they had sufficient evidence and asked the House to support their recommendation that the president suspend the four commissioners and appoint a tribunal to look into their conduct.
“The petition by the Republican Liberty Party discloses serious violations of the constitution and other laws as a ground for removal of Mrs. Juliana Cherera, Ms. Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi and Justus Nyangaya commissioners of IEBC,” read part of the report by the committee.
