Embakasi East Member of Parliament has sounded a warning to President William Ruto and his administration over the speech that was presented by IEBC Deputy chair Juliana Cherera, hinting out that she did as per the constitution of Kenya.
According to Babu Owino, every Kenyan has a constitutional right to express his or her contrary opinion, adding that, that was the case with Cherera and her team during the Bomas of Kenya saga that saw the country subjected to tension.
The Legislator noted that, they are set to hold the meetings that will then direct on the next course of action, asserting that, they are going to protect the IEBC Commissioners with everything they have from being violated by the ruling government.
“Every Kenyan has the right to express a contrary opinion. Cherera should not be kicked out of office because she gave her opinion. It was a right to freedom of expression…” said Babu Owino.
On the other end, Orange Democratic Movement Leader, Raila Odinga, has maintained that, there are operations to axe the IEBC four so that they can allegedly install their own preference ahead of the next general elections.
Raila, blasted IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati for allegedly refusing to step down in the face of his term limit, claiming that, Ruto and his allies don’t want Chebukati to retire now because, if he does Cherera, his deputy will take over and that will mean, exposing the incident that took place before Ruto was declared President of Kenya.
