Suna East MP Junet Mohamed has claimed that IEBC commissioners are being given large sums of money so that they can resign. Junet claims that the current regime is working extra hard to ensure that the dissenting commissioners are out of office as soon as possible.
The claims by Junet has come at a time when IEBC Vice Chair Juliana Cherera has just resigned from the electoral body. Cherera becomes the second person to resign in the Cherera four list.
The resignation of Cherera and Nyang’aya comes after Ruto suspended the four commissioners over “misconduct” in the just concluded elections.
However, Junet is one of the people who think that someone powerful is behind the resignations. According to Junet, the commissioners who have already resigned are being enticed with money to step aside and make the work of the tribunal set up by the president easy.
“If you placed a petition before the National Assembly and forcefully passed it through JLAC. Went ahead to pass it at night in parliament and formed a tribunal the same night, asked the Chief Justice to swear them the same night. Why do you then entice them with money to resign?” Junet has asked.
