The Tribunal probing the conduct of suspended IEBC commissioner Irene Masit has concluded its hearing awaiting a retreat for a verdict to determine if Masit will continue to hold the constitutional office.

In a ruling delivered at the end of the cross-examination of the immediate former IEBC Chairperson Wafula Chebukati, Justice Muchelule said parties will proceed to file written submissions ahead February 9 when the tribunal will allow them time to make oral highlights.

This follows Masit’s lawyer Donald Kipkorir, submitting that he will not be calling on any evidence for Masit.

Former IEBC chair Wafula Chebukari submissions took center stage in Tuesday’s proceedings, Chebukati arguing that Masit was a competent staff until the happening on the 15th of August.

Countering Chebukati’s remarks, lawyer Donald Kipkorir says Chebukat’s testimony against Masit hold no water terming them ‘wild imagination’

Masit also queried Chebukati on whether he contacted Former President Uhuru Kenyatta on the Venezuelans who were purported to be schemers of the August election.

Chebukati’s appearance before the Justice Aggrey Muchelule Tribunal comes a day after commissioners Abdi Guliye and Boya Molu, who retired alongside him on Monday, made their presentations.

Guliye and Molu told the tribunal a faction of the commission led by then Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera plotted with top national security officials to overturn the will of the people.
