Azimio member storms out of bipartisan talks during submission by IEBC

Eugene Wamalwa, Azimio representative in bipartisan talks stormed out of the meeting accusing the former IEBC chair of arrogance.

Azimio bigwig Eugene Wamalwa on Thursday walked out of the Bipartisan talks following an altercation with Kenya Kwanza representatives during the presentation of the infamous Cherera Four, the ousted former commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

As he stormed out, Wamalwa reaffirmed his position that the IEBC  did not deliver credible elections in the August 2022 polls.

The former Defence Cabinet Secretary criticized the former IEBC Chairperson Wafula Chebukati for missing the scheduled appearance before the National Dialogue Committee.

‘’We were hoping Chebukati would be here and he has denied the country to hear the story from both sides, the arrogance in his letter is something we will deal with,’’ he noted.

In a statement, Chebukati and two commissioners Prof. Abdi Guliye and Boya Molu said they will not attend the session describing the 2022 general election as a closed case.

During their submissions, the Cherera 4 maintained the stance that the results of the 2022 presidential election announced by Chebukati were not accurate and questionable.

The former IEBC commissioners cited instances when they requested former IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati to stream the tallying of results and he declined.

The Cherera 4 namely; Juliana Cherera, Irene Masit, Justus Nyang’aya, and Francis Wanderi who all gave a dissenting opinion and contested the results announced by Chebukati gave their accounts to the committee.

“My last born is 7 years old. It was bad even in school. Our social life really changed. It was bad for my children and my family. There are certain things we cannot say on camera because it is not a safe space,” Cherera submitted.

Irene Masit on her part said she had to go into exile after receiving death threats.

“The second threat was at night. I took a motorbike to the airport and I was the last one to the manifest. I did not report to the police because I was leaving the country,” Masit explained.
