Lawyer Janmohamed:Chebukati should be Barred from Conducting Elections and Holding Public Office.

Lawyer Zehrabanu Janmohamed has asked the Supreme Court to declare the 2022 Presidential elections null and void.

The Senior Counsel stated in her submissions to the court on Wednesday that the presidential election did not reflect the sovereign will of the people.

“We shouldn’t be in a position where we hope our votes count, but a position where we know our votes count,” she argued.

Janmohamed stated that due to election irregularities, they have asked the court to bar Independent Electoral Commission (IEBC) Chairperson Wafula Chebukati from conducting elections or holding public office.

“We have requested that the chairperson be prohibited from conducting any further elections in view of his behaviour and or holding any public office in Kenya in breach of chapter six of the constitution of Kenya,” she told the court.

She claimed that Chebukati’s honesty is questionable.

John Njoroge, a petitioner in the case challenging William Ruto’s victory in the 2022 presidential election, is represented by lawyer Janmohamed.

Raila Odinga and Martha Karua also asked the court on August 22 to declare Chebukati unfit to hold public office in their petition.

“…A declaration be made that Wafula Chebukati is unfit to hold public office and that IEBC, its chair and Commissioners Boya Molu and Abdi Guliye committed election irregularities.”
