Nairobi: I Cannot Add Cherera Four Even A Single Day In Office - Second Term MP Claims

Embakasi North Member of Parliament James Gakuya has now claimed that he cannot add the four Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) dissenting commissioners, otherwise known lightly as "Cherera four", who disputed the August 2022 presidential election results even a single day in office.

Speaking at a Live TV show on Tuesday morning, Gakuya argued that the commissioners should be made to pack their bags and exit office, and allow others to take up their jobs.

In his observation, the four, among them Juliana Cherera, Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi and Justus Nyangaya attempted to bungle the will of the people in the polls.

The second term lawmaker averred that he would be among the legislators who would sponsor a motion in Parliament to impeach the Maps.

"The four IEBC commissioners (dissenting) should go home. They were about to overturn the will of Kenyans. I will be part of those who will be seeking their removal from office," James Gakuya.

This comes months after Cherera and her team disputed the August 2022 presidential election, where Dr William Ruto was declared the winner.

During the last stages of tallying and verification of results at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi on August 15th, Cherera and his team deserted the IEBC commissioner Wafula Chebukati and disowned the results.

Few minutes to the announcement of the results, the quartet took off to Serena Hotel where they addressed a press conference. They rejected the results, citing opaqueness at the ultimate stage of the process.

Nevertheless, Dr Ruto was declared winner and later a petition filed to challenge his victory in court was also dismissed.
