NAIROBI, Kenya, June 29 – A petitioner has moved to court to challenge the appointment of three Jubilee Alliance and CORD politicians to the proposed Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) parliamentary select committee.
According to Henry Kioko, the appointments of Johnson Muthama, Moses Kuria and Junet Mohamed are illegal since they are facing criminal charges in court.
He argued that they lack integrity and wants them restrained from participating in any way or being part of the select committee pending determination of the suit.
Kioko further pointed out that the three failed to protect public interest and have continually breached the law.
He stated that that they cannot be relied upon to make informed decisions relating to the IEBC.
He emphasized that it would be unconstitutional to have the trio be members of the select committee having directly and indirectly infringed chapter six on leadership and integrity.
