High Court stops Cord leaders from raiding IEBC offices
High Court judge Isaac Lenaola on Friday issued temporary orders stopping Cord leaders from storming into IEBC offices.
This was in response to a suit by five Jubilee MPs who are seeking to stop Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetang’ula from continuing to storm IEBC premises countrywide to demand the removal of its commissioner’s from office.
Mr Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), Mr Dennis Waweru (Dagoretti South), Mr Kimani Ichungwa (Kikuyu), Ms Alice Ng’ang’a (Thika Town) and Ferdinand Waititu (Kabete) accused the opposition leaders of sabotaging the constitution.
While defending the current commissioners, they claimed that should the threats which were issued on Tuesday be effected, it would be in complete violation of the Constitution since the office holders have not completed their six year-term in office as required.
“No extra-judicial or extra-legal methods of removing sitting commissioners, embarked upon by the sued parties, are contained in the Constitution, therefore, this court cannot blink at such blatant violations,” they said.
