Peter Kenneth calls for exit of IEBC top officials

10 June 2016, 10:15 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Former presidential candidate Peter Kenneth has called for the resignation of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) top officials for the sake of Kenyans.

In a poetic letter addressed to IEBC chairman Isaack Hassan, Kenneth says Hassan and his team should read the mood and know it is time to exit office.

“It’s time for you to step down and let the country move forward. How many more people shall die, get injured, businesses destroyed?” Kenneth poses.

According to Kenneth, the electoral body as currently constituted cannot conduct free and fair elections in this country.

“There are serious doubts over IEBC’s ability to preside over a free election in this country, without the results being clouded with doubts,” Kenneth’s letter reads in part.

He says the commissioners should read the writing on the wall and resign honourably because Kenya is greater than any individual.

“It you have not noticed, the political debate is no longer about whether you will leave but the mechanics of your exit and how to replace you. Forget the politics; forget the protests-the ultimate truth is your exit is already a foregone conclusion. It is a matter of when not if.

“Save the government the teargas and the bullets; save the protesters the energy and tears and the country the pointless drama.

“Do the honourable thing. Exit. Put country first; The country is Greater,” Kenneth says.
