Activist wants Junet, Kuria and Muthama barred from IEBC talks
30 June 2016, 10:40
Nairobi - An activist has moved to court to seek the removal of Johnstone Muthama, Junet Mohamed and Moses Kuria from the team that will deliberate on IEBCreforms.
Henry Kioko says the three are still facing criminal charges and should be removed from the select Committee.
“Muthama, Junet and Kuria are facing criminal charges hence their participation in the talks will be unconstitutional because they lack integrity,” Kioko said.
He wants the court to issue temporary orders blocking the three from taking up the roles or participating in select committee pending determination of their hate speech case.

“They should not be part of that team until the determination of their cases,” Kioko added.
The three politicians were among eight legislators who were arrested and charged with hate speech two weeks ago but are out on bond.
Jubilee has claimed that the talks have been delayed by CORD who are yet to name members of their team.
CORD recalled its list of seven nominees to the Joint Parliamentary Select Committee on Wednesday following disagreement over the team’s composition and is expected to send a fresh list on Thursday afternoon.
