Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Commissioner Justus Nyangaya today resigned from the electoral body.
Justus Nyangaya tendered in his resignation a few hours after President William Ruto suspended him and three other Commissioners and formed a tribunal to investigate their conduct during August general elections.
Nyangaya in his letter said he had gotten into soul searching and prayers, leading to the decision to quit the commission.
“I have always endeavoured to act in the best interest of the country, although my actions, taken in a good faith have been misconstrued,” he said and expressed his gratitude for the opportunity he had been accorded to serve as a commissioner.
Nyanga’aya and the other commissioners Juliana Cherera, Irene Masit, and Francis Wanderi are accused of attempting to subvert the will of the people with regard to the August 9 presidential elections.
The four disowned results were announced by IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati.
President Ruto had suspended the four Commissioners from office following a recommendation of the Justice and Legal Affairs committee of the National Assembly.
