Another Cherera's Colleague Speak on Resigning After Ngang'aya and Vice Chairperson Resigned

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera on Monday resigned from the commission. Cherera's resignation follows that of Nyang'aya on Friday. These resignations comes days before a date with the tribunal appointed by President William Ruto to probe the 4 commissioners' conduct. But it emerges that the Mchelule tribunal has now been left to probe Irene Masit and Francis Wanderi.

According to reports, Commissioner Francis Wanderi has responded to whether he is going to resign. When contacted for a comment by the Star on his next steps, it emerges that he said he would stay put.

"No, I have not resigned," Wanderi told the Star but did not make further comments.

If the commissioners end up being found guilty by the tribunal, it emerges that they could end up being barred from holding public office just like an impeached official. They could also end up losing all their benefits despite serving as public servants at IEBC.
