Jaguar launches bid to remove IEBC offices from Anniversary Towers
Starehe MP Charles Njagua (Jaguar) has written to IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati telling him to close IEBC offices at Anniversary Towers and relocate them to Langata constituency.
In a letter dated October 12, Jaguar argues the location of IEBC offices in Starehe constituency has constantly disrupted business during NASA’s anti-IEBC demonstrations.
He now says the offices at Anniversary Towers be shut and relocated to secure peace for the business community.
Jaguar claims the businessmen and women in Starehe lose approximately Sh100 million whenever anti-IEBC protests are conducted.
“Estimates show that an approximate Sh100 million is lost directly and indirectly when your stakeholders engage you,” the letter copied to the Inspector General of Police reads in part.
“With the planned daily NASA engagements with you starting next week, my constituency members stand to lose Sh1 billion. This is unacceptable given our growing economy.”
The opposition NASA has been conducting demonstrations outside Anniversary Towers, the location of IEBC offices for two weeks now.
The protests aim at ejecting IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba and commissioners NASA accuses of mismanaging the August 8 general election from office.
“As a duly elected Member of Parliament for Starehe constituency with a clear mandate to represent the people of Starehe constituency, we hereby present our official bid to have your offices relocated from our constituency. Of the many possible relocation venues, Bomas of Kenya, off Langata Road would be an ideal location.”
He said in the recent past NASA supporters have made it impossible for individual and corporate members of his constituency to run their businesses in peace.
