"Cherera Na Wenzake Hawana Makosa" Raila Says In Kilifi County As He Criticizes Ruto's Hustler Fund

After President William Ruto suspended the four commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), the leader of the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance, Raila Odinga, once defended them.

After the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee (JLAC) recommended that Ruto suspend the four, Justus Nyang'aya, Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi, and Juliana Cherera, the commissioners had not responded to four petitions calling for their removal.

Speaking while attending Kilifi County Governor Gideon Mung'aro's Thanksgiving ceremony on Saturday, Raila asserted that the Supreme Court had determined that the "Cherera 4" did nothing illegal. Wafula Chebukati was discovered on the incorrect side.

The leader of the Orange Democratic Movement Party further criticized President Ruto's administration for misleading Kenyans about his plans to lower fuel, living, and basic food commodity prices and offer job opportunities to the youth. The leader claimed that nothing has been accomplished thus far and that Kenyans have no reason to be happy since Ruto came to power.

He continued by criticizing the recently established Hustler Fund, alleging that the president had misled Kenyans into believing that it would be interest-free when, in fact, they would now be required to pay 8% interest, and that the 14-day repayment period was unfriendly to the "hustler."

The Azimio camp will hold rallies at Kamkunji Grounds on December 7 and December 12, according to the former prime minister.
