Former National Assembly majority leader Aden Duale has vowed to take legal actions against four rebel IEBC commissioners who disagreed with the commission’s chairperson Wafula Chebukati.
Last month, the four commissioners led by IEBC vice chairperson Lilian Cherera, Justus Nyang’aya, Irene Masit, and Francis Wanderi disputed the presidential results announced by Chairperson Wafula Chebukati.
They said they could not take ownership of the results because of the ‘opaque’ nature of the way they had been handled.
“We, therefore, cannot take ownership of this result that is going to be announced,” the commissioners said in a statement read by Juliana Cherera just minutes before the official announcement of the results by Wafula Chebukati.
However, on Tuesday, September 6, the four said they respect the decision of the Supreme Court that upheld the results announced by IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati where he declared William Ruto the fifth president-elect.
Following their statement, Garissa Township MP Aden Duale said actions by the four commissioners amount to gross misconduct hence they will not go scot-free.
“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,
“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,” Duale said in a series of Tweets on Wednesday, September 7.
Duale further disclosed that the four will be removed from office by way of the Constitution.
“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,” he said.
