Four commissioners at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) have distanced themselves from the presidential results set to be announced.
The four commissioners, led by Juliana Cherera, stated that they cannot take ownership of the results due to the opaque manner in which they were handled.
"We have done the 2022 general election most efficiently. We have ensured that all the challenges have been contained," commissioner Juliana Cherera said during a hastily arranged press briefing at Serena Hotel in Nairobi.
"We have made sure that we have improved the standards, and we say as a fact as commissioners we have a done a good job.
"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.
Meanwhile, chaos erupted at Bomas of Kenya, the tallying centre, between the two factions, one supporting William Ruto and the other allied to Raila Odinga.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
