IEBC Chiarman Wafula Chebukati says he delivered in spite of threats

Chebukati reiterated that despite all the shortcomings, he had a duty to self, the Constitution, and country to act within the confines of the law.

"That's why I stand before you today despite intimidation and harassment. I have a duty to serve this country and in accordance with the Constitution," said Chebukati.

Chebukati's term ends in 2023

This will be Chebukati's last election to preside over as chair of the electoral agency. He has now overseen two general elections in Kenya, 2017 and 2022. "For those after me, we have prepared for you what the Constitution envisaged, which is an independent commission."

The chair announced the results on Monday, August 15 at the Bomas of Kenya, in the absence of four IEBC commissioners who distanced themselves from the last phase of the presidential tally, citing opaqueness.

"We cannot take ownership of results that will be announced. However, we have an open door that people can go to court and because of the same, we urge Kenyans to be peaceful because the rule of the law is going to prevail," Vice chair Juliana Cherera said.
