On Thursday, the National Dialogue Committee will hear from the immediately former chair of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Committee (IEBC), Wafula Chebukati, his former vice chair, Juliana Cherera, and five commissioners.
Before the committee facilitating bipartisan negotiations between the ruling Kenya Kwanza Alliance and the opposition Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party, Chebukati, Cherera, and commissioners Abdi Guliye, Boya Molu, Francis Wanderi, Irene Masit, and Justus Nyang’aya will present their views.
The National Cohesion and Integration Commission, the Council of Governors, the Kenyan Media Council, and Amnesty International are all scheduled to testify before the committee.
Transparency International and the Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research Analysis are two more.
The concerns the opposition has with President William Ruto’s administration are being discussed by the dialogue committee’s ten members. The proceedings will take place in the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi on Thursday.
The dialogue committee has 60 days to hold discussions and deliver a report to Parliament after signing its framework agreement on August 30.
Since last year, the leader of the opposition, Raila Odinga, has claimed that Ruto stole his election as president. This claim stems from the IEBC commissioners’ division into two parts when one group disassociated themselves from Mr. Chebukati’s announcement of the results.
