Okiya Omtatah Alleges Reason Why Ruto Is Targeting Cherera, Wanderi, Nyang'aya And Irene Masit

Renown litigant and current Busia county senator Okiya Omtatah has aimed an attack on president William Ruto and the kenya Kwanza alliance over the ongoing process in the national assembly over four dissenting commissioners of IEBC.

The four who are Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera, Francis Wanderi, Justus Nyang'aya and Irene Masit are being probed by the justice and legal affairs committee of the national assembly.

According to the report that is in tomorrow's version of People Daily, Omtatah believes president William Ruto is targeting the commissioners for political reasons ahead of the 2027 general elections.

He wondered why the head of state publicly threw his weight behind the ouster of the four IEBC commissioners when the Supreme court observed that the entire electoral commission was at fault. He said Ruto's hand is visible in the work of the justice and legal affairs committee.

"It is unacceptable that president William Ruto has taken sides and is openly supporting petitions targeting only the four commissioners and not the other three for purely political reasons, yet the supreme court pronounced itself that the entire commission is dysfunctional," part of his arguments in court stated.
