Justice Muchelule's Tribunal Probing 'Cherera 4' Told Why It Won't Get Serena Hotel's CCTV Footages

The tribunal appointed by President William Ruto to probe the 4 commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) kicked off its hearings yesterday.

The 4; Irene Masit, Justus Nyang'aya, Francis Wanderi and Juliana Cherera were accused of trying to subvert the will of Kenyans by denouncing the presidential results announced by IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati on August 15th.

The commissioners appeared for a press briefing at Serena Hotel countable minutes before Chebukati announced Ruto as the president-elect at the National Tallying Centre, the Bomas of Kenya.

According to response filed before the tribunal by the Serena Hotel General Manager Antony Chege, and reported by the Standard, the hotel do not take any responsibility for statements to clients who seek to use their facilities.

He added that the tribunal will not be getting the CCTV footages of the 4 commissioners during their two press briefings they made at the hotel, saying that they do not store such footage beyond a month.

"The system overwrites after 30 days. The four-month-old data is not recoverable and thus we are unable to provide the CCTV evidence of the proceedings of that day at the hotel. We remain available for any other information required."

It was also reported that the a friend of the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance footed the bills of the two pressers each at Sh30,000.
