- The IEBC officials at the centre of the petition are Juliana Cherera (vice chairperson), Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi and Justus Nyangaya.
- The four did not own the results that gave William Ruto victory in the face-off with Odinga.
Lawyer Miguna Miguna has said it's a wrong move for ODM leader Raila Odinga to defend the four embattled IEBC commissioners.
Miguna said it is an act of desperation saying that they are subverting the rule of law by defending them.
He said Kenyans practised their right by voting for a leader of their choice and the Azimio boss should not continue siding with the four that rejected the results.
"It is bad manners and an act of desperation for Raila Odinga and his followers to continue subverting the rule of law and democratic practice by openly supporting the four who attempted to overturn the will of the people in August," he tweeted.
The commissioners openly differed with chairman Wafula Chebukati and two other commissioners over the presidential vote tallying and final results.
Odinga and Wiper's Kalonzo Musyoka were among the dignitaries at the hearing of the petition seeking the remove the four on Thursday.
The IEBC officials at the centre of the petition are Juliana Cherera (vice chairperson), Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi and Justus Nyangaya.
The four did not own the results that gave William Ruto victory in the face-off with Odinga.
Ruto also fired back at Raila over his aggressive protection of the commissioners.
The President said Cherera and her three colleagues must be held to account for trying to subvert the democratic will of the people.
Raila had on Thursday accused Ruto of taking the country back to the days of Nyayo dictatorship saying he will lead a pushback against that.
"The lords of impunity, who destroyed oversight institutions using the handshake fraud, should allow Parliament to hold rogue officials who put the nation in danger by subverting the democratic will of the people to be held to account," Ruto tweeted.
