Cord in jubilation as IEBC retains Wetangula on voters’ register

Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula on Tuesday survived a bid to remove his name from the voters’ register over bribery claims.

A special committee of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission ruled that there was no justification for such a decision.

The decision of the committee, chaired by IEBC Commissioner Thomas Letangule,  means the senator and Cord co-Principal can vie in next year’s poll.

Other members of the committee are Ms Lilian Mahiri-Zaja and Mr Mohamed Alawi.

The commission’s investigations and prosecutions Manager Chrispin Owiye is the committee’s secretary while Moses Kipkosgei is the assisting counsel.
