President William Ruto has fired a new statement on the fate of the four dissenting independent electoral and boundaries commission (IEBC) commissioners led by vice chairperson Juliana Cherera, Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi, and Justus Nyang’aya.
In a late-night statement on Twitter, the head of state said that the fate of the four IEBC commissioners will not be determined by demonstrations by the opposition but by due process of the law. He said that the four tried to subvert the will of the Kenyan people.
