A tribunal set up to determine the fate of the four IEBC commissioners commence its hearings this morning. The Development comes after the high court declined to stop the proceedings following a lawsuit filed by Commissioner Irene Masit seeking to stop the exercise, Irene Masit wanted the high court to stay the proceedings pending the hearing and determination of the suit she has filed against her.
Irene Masit is the only independent Electoral and Boundaries commissioner who refused to resign after the other three Commissioners resigned. In one of her recent remarks she claimed that she will spill the beans on what happened during the August 9 presidential election that led to their Suspension by president William Ruto.
Remember that she and the other three IEBC Commissioners protested president William Ruto's victory claiming that the IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati did not include them before making the final announcement.
It's now a matter of wait and see what happens in the coming days if the Tribunal set up by president William Ruto will affirm their removal or not.
