The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has announced that a case against Moses Kuria will go to full hearing
The Gatundu Soth Legislator is accused of making claims that he was involved in vote-rigging in 2017
The MP’s lawyers had argued that the Commission was not legally mandated to hear the case
The commission accused Kuria of being in breach of its code of conduct by raising queries about the credibility of the said polls.
Kuria lawyers said that it will be prudent that they wait for a ruling on IEBC’s jurisdiction by the high court,
“IEBC Commission cannot be the complainant, prosecutor & judge. It will be biased in arriving at its judgment”
Chebukati led commission argued that they are mandated by article 884J of the constitution to oversee code of conduct compliance.
