However, new details on what allegedly forced ex-vice-chairperson Cherera to resign has emerged.

Cherera and Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition leader Raila Odinga are said to have allegedly met while the counting of votes process was ongoing.

Cherera, Raila and former Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho closeness prominently featured after the four commissioners press conference at Serena Hotel where they disagreed with IEBC boss Wafula Chebukati over the Presidential results.

Viral images of the three immediately started making rounds within social media platforms with members of the public claiming that they were being used by Raila Odinga and some invisible forces to cast doubt on William Ruto’s election win.
