BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,11TH SEPT 2017-The independent Electoral and Boundaries commission IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati has termed allegations by Deputy President William Ruto that he has been holding night meetings with the opposition.
Through his twitter account Chebukati termed the claims as reckless and unfounded.“Rumours regarding my so called night meetings with NASA are baseless and reckless,” he said in Twitter post.
In an interview with citizen TV Sunday night, the Deputy President said a memo from Chebukati directing IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba to a explain a number of issues regarding the August poll was a product of the night meetings with the opposition.
Although Mr Ruto did not provide any evidence about the alleged secret meet ups , he challenged Mr Chebukati to come out and deny the claims.
“Chebukati has been having night meetings with the opposition. I challenge Chebukati to come out and deny the claims. The memo by Chebukati mirrors the demands by the opposition,” Mr Ruto said
“We are telling Chebukati to stop the night meetings and deliver to Kenyans a credible poll. Let him stop the monkey games and work with other commissioners to give Kenyans and election,” Mr Ruto said.
Mr Ruto said Jubilee has nothing personal against Mr Chebukati but insisted that the chairman must do his work within the confines of the law.
