The four Commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) who objected to their Chairman Wafula Chebukati’s declaration of the president-elect as William Ruto are yet to file their affidavits.
Commissioners; vice chairperson Juliana Cherera, Justus Nyang’aya, Francis Wanderi, and Irene Masit are set to file separate affidavits to support their mathematical error claims in the petition filed by former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga.
According to the Four, Ruto shouldn’t have been declared a winner of the elections as they cite a mathematical error in the calculation of percentages of votes from the four presidential aspirants.
The Azimio la Umoja petition against the presidential results named the four commissioners as respondents alongside IEBC chairperson, Wafula Chebukati, and his commissioners Abdi Guliye and Boya Molu as well.
This is following their naming as respondents in the filed petition, hence as revealed by one of the commissioners, their choice to file affidavits as serving IEBC officials instead of representation as private citizens.
“We have already identified our lawyers and given them directives. We need our lawyers because the prayers Raila Odinga has given to the court concerning the case are different from what we have been listed to answer,” he said.
The Commissioner further revealed their readiness to testify in the case called on to by Chief Justice Koome and her fellow judges panel even though turned down the allegations of being in collision with the Azimio la Umoja team.

“We will always stand with the truth and that’s why we need to have our lawyers,” added the Commissioner though in anonymity.
