CORD should not complain about IEBC in 2017, Wamalwa says

19 January 2016, 18:35 William Korir

Nairobi - The CORD Coalition should not complain about the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC in the 2017 General Elections, Water and Irrigation CS Eugene Wamalwa has said.

In the aftermath of the decision by the IEBC to save CORD leader and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula from punishment over voter bribery allegations and charges, the CORD Coalition has been left in a tricky position over a body which they feel is not fit enough to handle the 2017 polls.

Many feel that the IEBC has done CORD a favour in not banishing Wetangula who was found guilty of bribery by both the High and Supreme Courts.

Bribery is punishable by removal from the voters list which would have lost Wetangula his seat and blocked him from political office for 10 years.

Wamalwa now believes that after endless complaints from CORD, the IEBC has proven it is a fair ground for electoral procedures.

" To all doubting Thomas' who were unsure of the credibility and Independence of IEBC and all our Democratic Institutions, today's verdict is your answer," he said of the verdict.

Wamalwa is a known supporter of the Jubilee Coalition and will contest for the Trans Nzoia County Governorship in 2017 using the Jubilee Party.

The IEBC said Tuesday that it had let Wetangula off the hook because there was no tangible evidence to charge him conclusively.
