Bungoma - Supporters of Bungoma Senator, Moses Wetang’ula have to wait until late January to know the fate of the Ford Kenya party leader who risks being struck out of the voter’s register over electoral offences.

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) boss, Ahmed Issack Hassan on Thursdday announced that the polls body has formed a special committee to deal with the Cord co-principal issue.

The Supreme Court upheld a decision that found Wetang'ula guilty of voter bribery charges, an election offence committed during the last polls.  

On October 23, Senate speaker Ekwe Ethuro publicized the Supreme Court ruling pursuant to section 87 (3) of the Election Act in respect of electoral offences committed.

A committee that will be chaired by IEBC commissioner Thomas Letangule has been tasked to handle the case and give its verdict by January, 20, according to the Electoral Commission Boss Issack Hassan.

"The Special Committee shall sit on January 12 to accord Wetang’ula an opportunity to show cause why he should not be removed from the register of voters,”  said Hassan in a press statement.  

He added that the special committee which shall regulate its own procedures, should submit its report to the Commission by January 20, 2016.

Other committee members include commissioners Lilian Mahiri-Zaja, Mohamed Alawi, Crispin Owiye (Secretary) and Moses Kipkogei (Assisting Counsel).
