Cherera Resigns, Pens Down A Letter To Ruto

Days after President William Ruto gazetted a tribunal to probe four suspended commissioners, Cherera, becomes the second commissioner to resign after Justus Nyangaya resigned on Friday, December 2, 2022.

It is with immense woe that today I tender my resignation as commissioner and vice chairperson of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC),” she said.

The embattled former commissioner explained that her time at the institution had become untenable.

After careful consideration of the current events at the commission and with consultation with my family and lawyers, I accept that my stay at the commission is no longer tenable and therefore choose to vacate,” her letter read in part.

Since joining the commission, I have dispensed my duties diligently, and meticulously and put a spirited effort in helping the commission deal with corporate governance issues under very difficult circumstances. My cumulative actions done in good faith are unfortunately misjudged and misinterpreted,” she added.

Four commissioners, including Cherera and Nyang’aya, are set to be investigated by a tribunal over their decision to disown the presidential election results announced in August 2022.
