The four Commissioners who disowned the presidential results announced by Chebukati have finally reacted to a statement made by the IEBC Chairman after the court upheld Ruto's victory. In a statement made public, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission stated that it has been vindicated by the Supreme Court.
Chebukati also stated that his staff members faced harassment, intimidation, abductions, and brutal killings yet no one had been brought to book.
The Commission also thanked the legal team not only for defending it but also for ensuring that the sovereign will of Kenyans is protected.
In response to Chebukati's statement, Madam Cherera, Mrs. Masit, Francis Wanderi, and Julius Nyang'aya have collectively acknowledged the legal team that battled it out at the Supreme Court.
In a press release dated the 6th of September, the four Commissioners have now disclosed that they all agree with Chebukati's statement that was published shortly after the Supreme court judgment.
"We also state here that we agree with the statement of the Chairperson of the Commission which was sent to the media yesterday. We wish to reiterate that we stand by rule of law and statutes that promote the effectiveness of the work of the Commission," reads part of the statement signed by the four.
