Raila Reveals Ruto’s Deal With Former IEBC Boss Chebukati


Azimio leader leader Raila Odinga claims that President William Ruto wants to make former IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati the Chief Justice of Kenya.

Raila alleges that the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) offered Ruto slots in the gazetted Court of Appeal vacancies.

Two of the slots, according to Raila, will be used by Ruto to appoint Chebukati and his predecessor at IEBC, Issack Hassan, as Court of Appeal judges.

Later on, Chebukati would rise to Chief Justice before the 2027 General Election.

Raila claims that the plot to elevate Chebukati was hatched at the meeting between the Judiciary, Parliament and Executive on Monday, January 22 at State House, Nairobi.
