End of the road for Cherera Four as president William Ruto formally suspends them

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBCfour )'s troubled commissioners have been formally suspended by President William Ruto, who has established a tribunal to hear a petition to have them removed from office.

The Head of State ordered that Vice Chairperson Juliana Whonge Cherera, Commissioners Francis Mathenge Wanderi, Irene Cherop Masit, and Justus Abonyo Nyang'aya resign from their positions until the tribunal's advice on Friday in a Gazette Notice.

He claimed that the commissioners' dismissal was recommended by the National Assembly in response to their actions on August 9, 2022, during the General Election.

“Having received and considered the petition of the National Assembly … I, William Samoei Ruto, President and Commander-in-Chief of the Kenya Defence Forces, do hereby direct that Juliana Whonge Cherera, Francis Mathenge Wanderi, Irene Cherop Masit and Justus Abonyo Nyang’aya, being members of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, be and are hereby suspended from office with immediate effect,” reads a section of the notice.
