Kimani Ichung'wa, the majority leader in the National Assembly, has urged the three IEBC commissioners who have not yet disassociated themselves from the presidential election results of August 9 to follow suit.
Ichung'wa urged Justus Nyangaya, who resigned from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), deputy chairperson Juliana Cherera, commissioners Irene Masit, and Francis Wanderi to do the same during a thanksgiving ceremony at Embu University.
“I plead with you, spare Kenyans the time, spare us the money, spare us the effort please resign like Nyangaya did,” he said.
Ichung'wa was blunt in his criticism of the three, telling them not to believe anyone who says that demonstrating will protect them from being removed from office through legal channels.
The so called "Cherera Four" disagreed with the results declaring President William Ruto the victor of the emotionally charged election. At the time, they were referred to as "opaque" figures.
