President Ruto tells off Azimio over ‘Cherera 4’ ouster

President William Ruto has told off the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition over the ongoing ouster petition against the dissenting 4 IEBC commissioners.

According to the president, the coalition should allow parliament an opportunity to bring the four to justice.

In a rejoinder today, Ruto said it is only just that the 4 are brought to account for what he described as their attempt to subvert the will of the people during the August 9 polls.

The four had expressed reservations over the process that led to the declaration of Ruto as Kenya’s 5th President.

The response on the president’s twitter handle follows an allegation by the opposition leader, that the hearing before the JLAC committee is a political witch-hunt.

The lords of impunity, who destroyed oversight institutions using the handshake fraud, should allow parliament to hold rogue officials who put the nation in danger by subverting the democratic will of the people to be held to account. New order is RULE of LAW not wishes of big men,” President Ruto said on his Twitter post.

The Opposition Chief claimed that the petition is being steamrolled\ by the Speakers of the National Assembly and the Senate and President Ruto.

The four Commissioners are supposed to appear before this Committee, be found guilty, and be made to appear before a tribunal to be set up by Ruto that will confirm their guilt. They will then be thrown out of IEBC,” he said.
