Kenyans React After Cherera Sends this Message to Ruto After Her Resignation

Embattled IEBC commissioners led by Vice chair Juliana Cherera seems to be bowing to pressure after President William Ruto formed a tribunal to investigate the four on what he termed as a political coup to change the will of the people. The four commissioners Julian Cherera (Vice chair), Irene Masit, Justus Nyangaya and Francis Wanderi.

The resignation of Cherera comes barely a day after his counterpart, Justus Nyangaya also tendered his resignation after pressure from the ruling party that they should just resign. In the letter addressed to president William Ruto through the Head of Public Service, Cherera said that her resignation was in good faith and it's so unfortunate that her actions were misjudged and misinterpreted.

"It is with immense woe that today I tender my resignation as commissioner and vice chairperson of the IEBC. I sincerely thank His excellency Dr William Ruto for the opportunity accorded to me to serve the republic." Cherera said in the letter.

The outgoing chair's resignation comes just a day as the Azimio camp plans to stage a major protest against their ouster .

"My cumulative actions done in good faith are unfortunately misjudged and misinterpreted." Cherera says in her resignation letter.

Kenyans have since reacted to her resignation with some saying that even if she had held on, the tribunal would have finally thrown her out. Below are some reactions;
