Weeks after the August 9 general election, Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission chairperson Wafula Chebukati is leading the poll agency on the post- election evaluation meeting.

The poll body has been on the spotlight over the manner it conducted the August 9 general election with former Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga claiming that the election was not free and fair.

So contested was the presidential contest between Raila and President Ruto, that the former Prime Minister challenged the former Deputy President's election at the Supreme Court. Unfortunately, for him, the Chief Justice Martha Koome-led Court upheld Dr Ruto's election as the country's fifth President.

On the day Chebukati announced the presidential election results, the IEBC Commission was divided right at the centre with the vice chairperson Juliana Cherera leading three other Commissioners in disowning the results that saw Dr Ruto declared the winner.

But after the Supreme Court upheld Ruto's election, Cherera and three other dissenting Commissioners issued a statement saying that they respect the Supreme Court ruling.
