Vice Chaur Juliana Cherera, a member of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), was the second of four commissioners under fire to resign from the electoral body on Monday.
Her resignation came shortly after that of her colleague, Commissioner Justus Nyang'aya. President William Ruto had previously suspended the two, along with Francis Wanderi and Irene Masit, and established a tribunal to investigate them.
In her letter to President Ruto, Cherera claimed that her actions had been misinterpreted and that she had acted in accordance with her obligations as the VC and a commissioner.
According to Cherera's attorney, Danstan Omari, who talked with NTV, she resigned because she couldn't stand before a jury whose verdict was already known.
Now the top trending news on social media is about the four IEBC commissioners who disrespect the IEBC law.
During the announcement of the winner during the general election, Juliana Cherera has been in trouble, as the government has directed him to resign from office immediately.
Now see what lawyer Danstan Omari says ahead of Juliana Cherera's case.
