IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati took to Twitter minutes before his Friday 7:30pm address to give tweeps a heads up that he would “address the nation.”
The tweet was shared over 500 times and received hundreds of replies with tweeps telling the chairman all sorts of things.
The chairman had last tweeted on Tuesday during the general election and his comeback on Friday provoked a variety of responses.
I will be on air at 7pm to address the Nation.
