IEBC, UhuRuto to shoulder blame in case of poll chaos
11 May 2016, 10:51
Nairobi - The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), president Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto will shoulder blame if the country plunges into chaos after the 2017 general elections.
A Nakuru based human rights activist Abdul Noor said that the chest-thumbing being portrayed by IEBC and the government under Uhuru Kenyatta is likely to send the country the wrong way.
He added that ignoring demands by the opposition to sack the current IEBC commissioners is a recipe for chaos.
Speaking Tuesday in Nakuru town, Noor said that the country is headed the wrong way and President Kenyatta must take action to save the nation from burning after 2017.

"The truth is that majority of Kenyans don't have faith in the current IEBC and the President should sit down with the opposition and listen to them because failure to do so might just send us back to 2007/2008," said Noor.
"If things go wrong in 2017, then the president, his government together with the IEBC will be forced to take the blame," he added.
"Why is it so hard for the President to simply sit down with the opposition and solve this IEBC issue once and for all?" he posed.
Noor called on IEBC commissioners to put the interests of the nation first and quit.
