Busia Senator has vowed to thwart efforts to remove four IEBC commissioners from office.
Okiya Omtata now Busia Senator has asked the courts to quash all four petitions filed at the National Assembly for the ouster of the now infamous “Cherera Four” commissioners.
He wants National Assembly’s, Justice and Legal Affairs committee to be stopped from sittings and or investigting the four commissioners.
According to Okiya Omtatah, IEBC Vice chairperson Juliana Cherara, Irene Masit, Justus Nyangaya and Francis Wanderi had a right to disagree with the results.
The four commissioner walked out of IEBC during the announcement of Presidential results and disowned the results declaring President William Ruto as opaque.
Busia Senator also wants the investigations and the outcome of the inquiry by the National Assembly quashed.
He also wants the high court to quash any resolution by the National Assembly assembly to forward to the president the four petitions seeking the removal of the four commissioners.
In addition Senator Omtatah wants the high court to declare that the decision by the Supreme Court in the 2022 presidential petition as final and an absolute bar to the four petitions filed in Parliament.
