Election Observer Group Disagrees With Ruto, Says Who he Should Meet Immediately

The PIMAC International Election Observer has taken issue with how President William Ruto has began utilising state funds only months after taking office.

The observer says that Ruto is using state money in a bid to pin down the four former IEBC commissioners who opposed his win in the August poll.

It has disagreed with this move, saying that the entire exercise of trying to punish the four is unnecessary, since Ruto has already secured the presidency.

The observer argues that the money being used in the process should be spent on better things that can help Kenyans and not to pursue a few people.

“The President can consider forgiving the four commissioners and instead use the money used in inquiring into their 2022 electoral process activities to help needy families stricken with hunger and poverty,” it said on Friday, reports The Star.

The four are former Vice Chair Juliana Cherera, Justus Nyangaya and Francis Wanderi who have since resigned after being suspended by Ruto.

Also a member of the team is Irene Masit, who was also suspended, though yet to resign. Ruto has since set up a tribunal to probe the four.

Those close to him have accused them of trying to sabotage the remaining three commissioners, Wafula Chebukati, Boya Molu and Abdi Guliye, into not announcing him winner even though he won.

The three retired earlier in the week, with the observer now stressing on the need for Ruto, Kenyans and the IEBC to let the past be and prepare for 2027.

It has stressed on the need for the Head of State to meet Cherera and his colleagues soon and possibly iron out the problems between them.

“We need more reconciliation and unity activities in bringing the country together as one people, one nation, creating employment, bringing food on the table, bringing money in the pocket, improving our economy,” the observer says.
