Jittery IEBC ponders Wetangula decision

20 November 2015, 18:31 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC is yet to make a decision on whether to remove Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula from office over electoral malpractices.

The CORD Co- Principal faces possible expulsion from office for voter bribery during the recently ended 2013 General Elections.

This is after the Supreme Court found him guilty of the offence.

According to the IEBC penal code, a person found guilty of voter bribery can be removed from the voter register, which will mean that Wetangula loses his seat and is banned from electoral politics for as many as 10 years.

The IEBC though, was set to make the decision two weeks ago but they have yet to, which has brought tension within Wetangula's camp and the CORD coalition as a whole.

According to sources within the IEBC, there has been continued consultation over the decision.

" There is continued consultation over the decision. There is nothing to report yet but it is being considered," the source stated.

According to other sources, there is serious lobbying over the decision, with CORD officials having spoken to senior IEBC officials over the matter exhaustively.

" It is a serious decision. There must be time taken over it," the official added.

Tongaren MP Eseli Simiyu though, states that they expect Wetangula to be cleared over the matter.

" This is not an issue for discussion. He is a senior leader in Western Kenya and he must be respected," he offered.

Wetangula himself has been very quiet about the situation, instead choosing to focus on building his popularity in the Western Kenya region.

It is not yet clear when a decision will be made by the IEBC, though it is expected that there will be a meeting of the Commision's Commissioners next week.
