Chebukati dares Orengo to resign

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairperson Wafula Chebukati has dared Siaya Senator to resign from his electoral position.

IEBC through a press release on Wednesday challenged the Senior Council to quit his job as Siaya Senator after his call for the disbandment of the Chebukati led commission.

Orengo in the recent past called for the disbandment of IEBC as part of the electoral reforms that should be adopted in the final recommendation of the BBI task force.

Chebukati Responds

In a quick rejoinder the commission accused the Senator of double speaking for holding a position, the same commission was in charge during the last general election.

“The remarks by Senator Orengo that the Commission is a “criminal enterprise” which can be disbanded is disrespectful and an insult to the constitution. He is an elected member of the Senate and is therefore, a product of the same alleged criminal enterprise. If he stands by his sentiments, he should resign to gain the moral ground to criticize,” the statement by IEBC read in part.
