IEBC Vice Chair Person Juliana Cherera Resigns

The IEBC Vice Chair Juliana Cherera has resigned just a week after being suspended by President William Ruto. She is the second commissioner after Nyang'aya to resign. Nyang'aya resigned on Friday last week.

Today morning she has stated that she is no longer interested because the current situation is getting out of hand.

"It is with immense woe that today I tender my resignation as commissioner and vice chairperson of Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC)."

"Since joining the commission, I have dispensed my duties diligently, meticulously and put a spirited effort in helping the commission deal with corporate governance issues under very difficult circumstances. As vice chairperson, I always advocated for fair treatment and equal opportunity for all staff."

"However, my cumulative actions done in good faith are unfortunately misjudged and misinterpreted. After careful consideration of the current events at the commission and with consultation with my family and lawyers, I accept that my stay at the commission is no longer tenable and therefore choose to vacate."

"I sincerely thank His Excellency Hon. Dr. William Samoei Arap Ruto, The President of the Republic of Kenya for the opportunity accorded to me to serve the republic."

The fate of the four commissioners is yet to be established through the tribunal.
