President William Ruto has addressed the move to kick out Juliana Cherera and her three colleagues from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
President Ruto termed Cherera and her three colleagues as rogue officials whose actions were an attempt to thwart the will of the people in the August General Elections.
The president went on to say that there was no wrong in the move by parliament to institute proceedings against Cherera and her team of Irene Masit, Justus Nyang’aya, and Francis Wanderi.
“The lords of impunity, who destroyed oversight institutions using the handshake fraud, should allow Parliament to hold rogue officials who put the nation in danger by subverting the democratic will of the people to be held to account,” said Ruto. “New order is the rule of law, not the wishes of big men.”
His response came a day after Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga accused Ruto of going after the Cherera team in a revenge mission.
