Azimio Senator Claims Why The Fate of 'Cherera 4' is Sealed Even After Two Commissioners Resigned

The decision by the IEBC vice chair Juliana Cherera, and Commissioner Justus Nyang'aya to resign from the poll agency has attracted different views on what awaits them after President William Ruto formed a tribunal to probe them alongside Irene Masit and Francis Wanderi.

Some lawyers and political experts claim that Cherera and Nyang'aya have an advantage since they will not face the tribunal, but others claim that the tribunal might launch an inquiry even after their resignation, and thus they are not yet off the hook.

Speaking with K24 TV on Tuesday, Azimio's Vihiga Senator Godfrey Osotsi claimed that the fate of the 4 commissioners is sealed, and the process to oust them was already pre-determined.

In his view, Osotsi alleged that the manner in which the process took place from the petitions, the JLAC proceedings, the debate in National Assembly, their suspension and even the formation of the tribunal points to one direct, to oust and punish the commissioners.

"The outcome of this process is pre-determined. You have heard the president himself and some UDA MPs saying that the 4 must be punished. The president has appointed the tribunal to inquire the issues around the commissioners."

"The chair of the JLAC committee was clearly biased during the proceedings, and I think he was under instructions on what the outcome of the committee was to be. I also think whether the commissioners resign or not, the outcome is the same."
