What Cherera & Ngang'aya Feared That Lead to Their Resignation Finally Revealed

It has emerged that the IEBC vice chairperson Juliana Cherera and commissioner Justus Nyang'aya have fears of being taken through humiliating hearings and risk of being banned permanently from holding public office. These, according to reports, are among the key issues that forced the two IEBC officials to resign from the commission.

Cherera and Nyang’aya resignations now leaves Francis Wanderi and Irene Masit as the only 2 commissioners expected to face tribunal that was formed by President Ruto. The 4 dissenting commissioners had opposed the presidential results after Chebukati declared Ruto's election win.

According to the Star, another reason why Justus Nyang'aya and Juliana Cherera resigned from IEBC was the painful consequences of being found guilty by President William Ruto's tribunal. A report reveals that if an individual is indicted by a tribunal, he or she cannot hold any other public office just like an impeached official.

Individuals indicted by a tribunal also lose all their benefits. This is what would happen to the commissioners despite having been at the helm of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission for more than one year now.
