Wafula Chebukati, the former chair of the IEBC, has claimed he never went into hiding following the announcement of the official presidential results on August 15 of last year.
In response to inquiries from attorney Donald Kipkorir on behalf of suspended commissioner Irene Masit, Chebukati stated that he was at home.
Kipkorir questioned whether he had hid for three days like the other two former commissioners, Abdi Guliye and Boya Molu, who claimed to have been forced to do so.
“I went to my house and I was there throughout, I didn’t go to hide anywhere,” he said.
Making the discoveries on January 16 at the Nairobi Safari Park’s introduction of the 2022 post-election Evaluation Report, Guliye described the tragic events of that day as horrifying.
He claimed that he went to an unidentified place with CEO Marjan Hussein and Molu and returned once things had restored to normal.
“After the Bomas announcement of the presidential results, I recall going into Siberia in my county together with CEO Marjan and commissioner Molu, we went into hiding, put off our phones and sent away our security,” he said.
