CJ Koome swears in nine members to the ‘Cherera 4’ probe tribunal
The nine members of the tribunal chosen by President William Ruto to look into the conduct of the IEBC vice chairperson Juliana Cherera and three other commissioners have been sworn in.
The nine were sworn in in a ceremony led by Chief Justice Martha Koome.
The tribunal appointed on Friday, December 2, will be chaired by Justice Aggrey Muchelule.
Carolyne Kamende Daudi, Linda Gakii Kiome, Mathew Njaramba Nyabena, and retired Colonel Saeed Khamis Saced were also appointed to probe the commissioners.
Kibet Kirui Emmanuel, Irene Tuntu Neboe, Peter Munge Murage and Zamzam Abdi Abib will also be part of the tribunal.
Other commissioners to be investigated alongside Cherera are Justus Nyangaya, Francis Wanderi and Irene Masit.
“The mandate of the Tribunal shall be to consider the petition for the removal of Juliana Cherera, Francis Mathenge Wanderi, Irene Cherop Masit and Justus Abonyo Nyang’aya from office as members of IEBC and to inquire into the allegations therein,” read the special gazette notice in part.
Further, the President directed the four commissioners to be suspended until the matter is concluded.
