What JLAC Has Asked The President To Do To The Four Embattled IEBC Commissioners

It has been reported to parliament that the Justice and Legal Affairs committee's investigation into the behavior of the four commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has failed.

The committee has suggested that President William Ruto, His Excellency the Head of State, suspend the four and appoint a tribunal to probe them further.

The committee chair, reading out the committee's findings, stated that the four IEBC Commissioners had committed serious offices that violated the constitution and the law of the elections in the country.

The report states, "We suggest that the House adopts the findings of the committee that the four IEBC Commissioners committed severe violations."

He then noted that the committee had suggested the president establish a tribunal to decide the fate of the four IEBC commissioners.

Aside from Vice Chair Juliana Cherera, the other three are Commissioners Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi, and Justus Nyang'aya.

The Republican party, Dennis Nthumbi, Geoffrey Langat, and Owuor Steve Gerry have all petitioned for the four commissioners' dismissal, citing allegations of serious misconduct, misuse of power, violation of the Constitution, and taking sides in the August 9 presidential election as justifications.
