Outgoing Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairperson Wafula Chebukati on Monday, January 16, revealed intricate details of the aftermath of the chaos at Bomas of Kenya, minutes after the results of the presidential election were announced.
Speaking during the launch of the Post Election Evaluation Report, Chebukati affirmed that his commissioners went into hiding, prompting him to leave the premises and return to his house.
Well, hours before he made the major announcement at Bomas of Kenya Wafula revealed that DCI cops wanted to Kidnap him before he went to the podium.
According to him he spent hours inside a room hiding at the Bomas of Kenya where he could hear DCI cops exchanging some bitter words with William Ruto's bodyguards.
During the announcement, some serious Chaos were witnessed with security personnels forced to escort Chebukati out only for him to return to the podium where he announced Ruto as the winner.
Well another new development has emerged after Chebukati revealed what followed later.
He noted that for three days, he was on edge- waiting to see if anybody paid him a visit. While breathing a heavy sigh of relief, he affirmed that nobody came to his house.
According to the two other IEBC officials, they were forced to drop their security personnels and travel to unknown destinations after the results.
Guliye revealed that they boarded a Toyota Noah after leaving their phones at Bomas of kenya.
They went into hiding and the only contact they had was the Tv, where Guliye said they were keenly following to see if chaos broke in the country.
