Just today, a section of presidential hopeful whose dreams were squashed by the Chebukati led commission called for a press conference where they said that the commission has been practicing partiality ok it's mandate. According to them, the IEBC has been applying sub standards especially when clearing the presidential aspirants. The trio led by Jimi Wanjigi, Ekuru Aukot said that they will be moving to court seeking an injunction against the IEBC.
As the drama continues, Chama Cha Kazi (CCK) party leader Hon Moses Kuria has now come out where he said that the IEBC should be stopped from carrying out any electoral preparation until the alleged irregular voter transfer issue is fully addressed. Kuria who was speaking to TV 47 said that they will be seeking to push the IEBC to address the issue.
His remarks comes barely days after the Kenya Kwanza leader William Ruto said that close to 1 Million registered voters have been moved from his alleged stronghold.
Kuria also noted the differences between president Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto where he asked the president to be ready to hand over power to him even if they do not shake hands.
"Uhuru should be prepared to hand over instruments of power to William Ruto even if he won't shake his hand on that day...This is something the constitution guarantees." Kuria added.
