His Excellency President William Ruto has been handed morning bad news regarding the four ‘rebel' IEBC Commissioners whom he recently suspended.
According to reports, three residents from Meru county have decided to take the Head of State to Court, seeking to stop the tribunal he (President Ruto) appointed to investigate the conduct of the 4 commissioners, Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera (resigned), Francis Wanderi, Irene Masit and Justus Nyang'aya (resigned) from kicking off its hearings.
The President had appointed a 9-man team lead by Senior Appellate Justice Aggrey Muchelule to conduct the investigations shortly after suspending the four.
According to the three residents who have been identified as Mr Philemon Munjuri, Godfrey Kinoti and Joshua Mwirigi, in a petition already filed at Meru High Court, conservatory orders restraining the implementation of the special gazette no. 14890 of December 2, 2022, which announced the appointment of the tribunal by President William Ruto should be issued.
Further, the petitioners also want the court to issue another conservatory order restraining the implementation of the report of the National Assembly on the petitions for removal from office of the four commissioners.
