Four commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), the body that runs elections in Kenya, held a surprise press conference at Serena Hotel, Nairobi on Monday afternoon, on the pending results of elections held on 9 August 2022.
The commissioners said they will not take ownership of the results that will be announced by chair Wafula Chebukati.
The commissioners, including vice chair Juliana Cherera, commissioners Francis Wanderi, Irene Masit and Justus Nyang’aya, claimed that the results were arrived at in an opaque manner, without giving further details. Said Cherera:
We are not at Bomas because we cannot take ownership of the results that are going to be announced.
