What you need to know:

  • Mr Odinga said the fight for a lean IEBC was on course, explaining that he was involved in the creation of the current commission but they had not envisioned the commissioners would turn out to be corrupt.
  • The Opposition, which has been calling for the removal of the nine electoral agency commissioners, had said on Tuesday that the rally would go on. The defiance continued even after a meeting at State House, where President Kenyatta invited opposition leaders to the celebrations at Afraha..

There will be no elections in 2017 if IEBC commissioners don't leave office, opposition leaders Raila Odinga and Moses Wetang'ula have said.
