What Cherera And Her Team Ask President Ruto Revealed

The four commissioners who are currently under fire from the electoral agency want President William Ruto to explain how he arrived at the conclusion that they were " rogue officials. "

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners Juliana Cherera, Francis Wanderi, Irene Masit, and Justus Nyang' aya wrote a letter to President Ruto that was drafted by their attorney Apollo Mboya and addressed to President Ruto. In the letter, the commissioners said that they would only participate in the ongoing Justice and Legal Affairs Committee (JLAC) hearings against them if the head of state responded to their request. The letter was addressed to President Ruto.

" The aforementioned tweet, which we believe is connected to the petition that is currently being considered by the Honorable Departmental Committee. . .

In order for us to participate fully in the proceedings before the Departmental Committee, and taking into consideration that the process may very well culminate in you appointing a tribunal, this is to request that you provide us with further and better particulars forming the conclusions made in your tweet that (a) the activities, conduct or actions of the officials that make the official rogue, and (b) that the activities, conduct or actions of the said officials that subverted the official, and (c) that the activities, conduct or actions " In a letter dated November 28, 2022, Mr. Mboya, in his capacity as acting representative for the four commissioners, stated.

The results of the presidential election were announced by commission chairman Wafula Chebukati on August 15, 2022, and declared Dr. Ruto the winner of the closely contested elections against his main challenger Mr. Raila Odinga. Four petitioners are requesting that the four commissioners be removed from their positions as a result of their decision to reject these results.

The following is an excerpt from a tweet that was sent out by President William Ruto regarding the four commissioners: " The lords of impunity, who destroyed oversight institutions using the handshake fraud, should allow Parliament to hold rogue officials who put the nation in danger by subverting the democratic will of the people to be held to account. "

Mr. Mboya stated to the committee that on November 25, 2022, President Ruto sent a tweet directed at the four commissioners in which he implied that he has already judged them and that the House committee could be engaged in a matter whose outcome is already predetermined. The tweet was directed at the four commissioners.

At a meeting on Tuesday that was attended by Mr. Odinga, the leader of the Wiper party, Kalonzo Musyoka, the patron of the DAP- K, Eugene Wamalwa, and the executive director of Kanu, George Wainaina, it was decided that the JLAC hearings against the four IEBC commissioners are a " lynch mob, a hired hit squad, and an illegality with a predetermined position. "

Beginning on December 7, the organization will show their support for the four commissioners by participating in public engagements all throughout the country.
