• Cherera noted that the photos of her making rounds on social media were taken out of context.
• She says Kenyans are personalizing the current situation involving her distancing herself from the Presidential results.
Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) vice chairperson Juliana Cherera has expressed her disappointment in Kenyans insisting that they are personalizing the current situation which is not fair.
Taking to her twitter account, Cherera urged Kenyans to stop sharing photos of her with Azimio la Umoja leaders on social media.
Cherera noted that the photos of her making rounds on social media were taken out of context as she had a previous job before being selected as the IEBC chairperson.
In her tweet she also made it clear that the photos would not intimidate her nor her collegues and the four were not going to change their stance on the presidential results.
She wrote, " My colleagues and I have indicated irregularities in the presidential tallying process. It is not fair to personalize issues. Photos of me discharging duties in my previous position have nothing to do with the facts we have laid bare."
Cherera stunned Kenyans when she and 3 other commissioners had an impromptu press conference at Serena Hotel just a few minutes before Wafula Chebukati was supposed to announce the presidential results on Monday evening.
The commissioners stated in a news release delivered by vice-chairperson Juliana Cherera on Tuesday at the Serena Hotel that the addition of the percentages of the results was a mathematical folly that defied reason.
They claimed that the total percentage of votes cast for each of the four presidential contenders was greater than 100%.
"This summation gives us a total of 100.01 percent. This translates to approximately 142,000 votes which will make a significant difference in the final results," Cherera said.
"When we demanded that we verify the results, the chairman refused and insisted on declaring and announcing the results," she added.
