Why IEBC cleared Wetangula

19 January 2016, 15:36 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD co-principal Moses Wetangula has been cleared by the Independent Boundaries Commision IEBC over voter bribery allegations. But why?

Wetangula risked being cut off the voters register after the Supreme Court as well as High Court ruled that he had taken part in voter bribery.

If he was found guilty, Wetangula who is the Bungoma Senator would have been kicked out of the voters register and in essence lose his position as well as earn a 10 year ban.

And despite the evidence being that he did so as ruled by the courts, the IEBC overruled them. Why?

First, Wetangula's clout is huge. He is a leader of the fifth biggest party in Kenya and one which contributed close to a million votes in the 2013 General Election. His exit would have presented a huge problem to the IEBC who would have been seen to be eliminating a key leader just a few months to the General Elections in 2017.

Second, there was excess tension in western Kenya where the CORD leader comes from. In the event that he was barred, there could have been escalation in violence, which would have caused major anxiety and apprehension in a normally peaceful country.

Lastly, if he was barred, the move to do so would have been taken as a decision by the government to frustrate the opposition, which would not have augured well for President Uhuru Kenyatta who is keen to keep away from judicial matters as much as possible.

" The fact is that barring Wetangula would have been a largely unpopular move which would not have earned the government any sort of goodwill for the Presidency," Political Analyst Michael Njenga told News24.
