Duale calls for dismissal of four ‘rebel’ IEBC Commissioners

  • Save

Garissa Township MP-elect Aden Duale is now calling for the dismissal of four rebel IEBC commissioners, led by vice chairperson Juliana Cherera.

In a statement on Tuesday night, the MP said it will not be business as usual, accusing the four of gross misconduct and violation of the constitution.

“No it cannot be business as usual! The actions in what appeared like cinema featuring Cherera as the lead actor and voice actress is a pure blatant gross violation of the Constitution and the law for attempting to subvert the will of People through fabrications,” Duale said.

“Their actions were also nothing short of gross misconduct as they worked in cohort with their wicked masters to negate a free and fair election.”

The four include; Cherera, Justus Nyang’aya, Irene Masit and Francis Wanderi.

According to the former National Assembly majority leader, the four must take responsibility for their actions.

“The four commissioners should be held accountable both individually and collectively. They cannot turn on and off like a switch and expect us to just forget everything. They must face the music,” Duale added.

“Article 251 of the Constitution which provides for the removal of commissioners on grounds of gross violation of the Constitution and the law and gross misconduct can only be the only solution! This is the music they must face! For now, they need to know sisi Wakenya hatubebangwi hivyo.”

The four ‘rebel’ commissioners disputed the presidential election results announced by the IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati.

The four said they could not take ownership of the results because of the opaque nature of the way they had been handled. 

“But some things need to be put out there as you can see the four of us are here and not at Bomas where the results are going to be announced because of the opaque nature of how this phase has been handled,” Cherera said.

“We therefore cannot take ownership of this result that is going to be announced,” she added.

Chebukati in response claimed that they wanted him to alter the results of the August 9 presidential election.

In a statement on Tuesday, however, the four ‘rebel’ commissioners said they were fully in agreement with the Supreme Court verdict on the presidential election.
