It is on a Thursday morning and the intrigues surrounding the famous Cherera four continue to take a new twist.
This is after Meru High Court declined to stop a tribunal from investigating the conduct of the four. Justice Edward Muriithi ruled that the petition filed by three Meru residents would stay alive and would scrutinize the tribunal’s findings to check if the rights of the IEBC commissioners had been violated.
But even as the tribunal is set to commence its work, one of the remaining commissioners Irene Masit has threatened to expose more, saying Kenyans should expect a bombshell on the management of this year’s presidential.
Masit said she will not resign from the Commission until she clears her name.
“I’m not ready to quit and Kenyans should expect a bombshell during my appearance before the Justice Aggrey Muchelule-led tribunal,” she said.
Her lawyer Donald Kipkorir argued that the tribunal formed to investigate the ‘Cherera four’ is proceeding on a trial that lacks a strong base, claiming that it
(tribunal) has already formed a pre-determined outcome.
What do you think her Bombshell will be? Is it likely to change the direction of her ouster from office?
