Mr Chebukati, William Ruto and Adan Duale. DP Ruto and Wafula Chebukati’s close ties go way back even before he was appointed as the IEBC chairman

DP Ruto through National Assembly Speaker Justine Muturi, former Majority leader in the House, Adan Duale and former Cabinet Secretary Davis Chirchir have infiltrated a good number of the commissioners to assist in the manipulation of the Presidential elections. The commissioners include Vice Chair Juliana Cherera, Prof Abdi Yakub Guliye, Mboya Molu, Francis Wanderi, Justus Nyang’aya, and Irene Masit. Mr Chirchir in particular our source says is a threat to the forthcoming election since he’s an IT guru

Kenya’s rebel Deputy President William Ruto of the Kenya Kwanza Alliance was able to infiltrate the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC)’s top brass, including Chairman Wafula Chebukati, The Weekly Vision can authoritatively reveal.

It is increasingly looking evident that the IEBC chairman’s core mandate, given to him by the DP’s team of advisers is to manipulate and compromise this year’s Presidential election results in favour of his boss William Ruto. DP Ruto is doing all that he can, legal and through unorthodox means, to be able to get to the State House using his henchmen at the helm of the IEBC to give the process some measure of credibility.

The Weekly Vision investigations team discovered that William Ruto and Wafula Chebukati’s close ties go way back even before he was appointed as the IEBC chairman. Mr Chebukati quit Raila Odinga’s Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party after losing the Saboti constituency seat in the highly disputed 2007 general elections

He operates in favour of the Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate Dr William Samoe Ruto at all times. He should be investigated keenly especially when the DCI mentioned in their detailed report that there were some election materials which had entered the country but could not be traced, a revelation which emerged after the capture of the three Venezuelan nationals. The source also says that Smartmatic Company is connected to one of Kenya Kwanza’s top brigades!  

 The Weekly Vision investigations team discovered that William Ruto and Wafula Chebukati’s close ties go way back even before he was appointed as the IEBC chairman. Mr Chebukati quit Raila Odinga’s Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party after losing the Saboti constituency seat in the highly disputed 2007 general elections.

He soon after gravitated towards William Ruto’s wing of ODM before they moved out to form the United Republic Party (URP) just before the 2013 elections. He is also a beneficiary of some lucrative legal assignments courtesy of William Ruto’s multi-billion shillings business empire, most of the DP’s business dealings are shrouded and still doggedly haunted in controversy.

Over the years Mr Chebukati’s business deals with DP Ruto have earned him millions of shillings and even after joining the Electoral Commission as Chairman the two still maintain very close links.

 The relationship between the duo and the covert manoeuvres to help in manipulating this year’s Presidential poll was evident when all of a sudden, DP Ruto changed his hardline stance on the critical question of the manual voter register at the polling stations after meeting Mr Chebukati at his plush Weston hotel on Langata road.

DP Ruto has publicly defended the IEBC, the latest being his warning to the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Director George Kinoti not to interfere with the operations at IEBC soon after the arrest of highly questionable three Venezuelan nationals who were found with IEBC material in total disregard to protocols

Mr Chebukati had earlier announced that his commission was to conduct this year’s general elections using some 2017 discredited Biometric Electronic Machines popularly known as KIEMS kits and that the manual voter register would not be available. DP Ruto was in agreement with Chebukati on the subject but his competitor Raila Odinga immediately went public declaring that will not be acceptable.

That is when the IEBC boss was forced to convene an urgent meeting with all the Presidential candidates at Windsor hotel to clear the air. Mr Odinga was the first to arrive at the function and met Mr Chebukati and just as he was leaving, DP Ruto zoomed in for the meeting.

Interestingly, immediately after this meeting with Mr Chebukati, DP Ruto announced his change of mind and now supports his stand on the KIEMs whose efficiency, reliability, and integrity have not been tested and proven, experts believe the items are susceptible to manipulation.

Then there are the persistent warnings to President Uhuru Kenyatta by the DP not to interfere with IEBC and this year’s general elections amongst many other warnings.

These are clear signals that the rebel President and his henchmen in charge of the IEBC are up to no good.Mr Chebukati even defended the three Venezuelan suspects as employees of Smartmatic International, he heaped blame on the security officers accusing them of interfering With the IEBC operations, he was quoted saying that the arrests will “adversely affect this year’s general elections”.
