After months of bickering, threats and accusations over the fate of the four rebel electoral Commissioners, the final purge has started. Irene Masit, the only Commissioner in the 'Cherera Four' now left in the electoral Commission, chose the risk option of fighting to the end even as her three colleagues threw in the towel in exchanges of some form of freedom from public ridicule.
When the pre-trial conference began the tribunal established to investigate deputy IEBC vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera, Commissioners Justice Nyangaga, Francis Wanderi and Irene Masit was told of some pressure from the government.
According to Irene Masit the the IEBC Commission has Withdrawn her security and cars which are her right. And the tribunal had said that she need to continue to enjoy her right as an IEBC Commissioner.
It's now a matter of wait and see what happens in the coming months if the tribunal will affirm president William Ruto's Suspension on the IEBC vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera and the other three Commissioners or not.
