BREAKING NEWS: IEBC Vice Chair Juliana Cherera Resigns, Thanks President Ruto On This

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Vice Chair Juliana Cherera has resigned.

As vice chairperson, I always advocated for fair treatment and equal opportunity for all staff.

While on her suspension, Juliana and her group won’t be allowed to dispense their duties, but will be paid half of their monthly salaries

"I sincerely thank His Excellency Hon. Dr. William Samoei Arap Ruto, The President of the Republic of Kenya for the opportunity accorded to me to serve the republic. God bless." She added.
