Good news to Juliana Cherera and the other two commissioners

The position of Vice Chair remained vacant because Juliana Cherera, the Commissioner of the Independent Electrol and Boundary Commission (IEBC), resigned under pressure from some of Ruto's allies. Francis Wanderi and Julius Nyang'anya, two more commissioners, also resigned, leaving just Commissioner Irene Masit from Cherera Four to continue in her position despite significant misconduct and legal infractions during the general election of last year. The three—Juliana Cherera, Francis Wanderi, and Julius Nyang'anya—were picked by the then-President Uhuru Kenyatta just a few days before the August election.

When the three chose to quit, they had only been in their jobs for a little under three months. They will still receive their wage despite their resignation, which is fantastic news for them. The contract they signed said that Cherera, Wanderi, and Nyang'anya might be employed for the following six years. Cherera Four entered into a six-year contract at the office, which will end in 2028, just after the general election of 2027. Even though they weren't working in the office, they can still be compensated under this. Millions of dollars will be paid for this by the taxpayers.
