- IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati yesterday gave his stand on the oncoming October 26 repeat presidential elections.
- In his statement, he assured Kenyans that he intends to go on with the process despite Roselyn Akombe's resignation.
- Kenyans on social media had something to say about his remarks, as usual.
Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chair Wafula Chebukati admitted that he cannot guarantee free, fair and credible polls on October 26th.
Chebukati gave this statement on 18th October after the resignation of one of IEBC’s commissioners, Roselyn Akombe. Akombe left the country saying that the commission was under siege, only days to the repeat polls.
In his detailed statement, he condemned political leaders who have failed to put their interests aside.
“The burden placed on me as chairman is huge. Yet, I can’t move forward with a divided commission. I can’t move forward when presidential candidates refuse to put their personal interests aside and for once, serve their country,” said Chebukati.
As usual, Kenyans took to social media, some expressing their distrust in the IEBC while others urged Chebukati to forge on.
Here are some of the comments;
