Cherera rose to prominence on Monday when she led a group of three commissioners to boycott Wafula Chebukati’s presidential declaration at the Bomas of Kenya.
Prior to her appointment to the electoral commission, she served as county secretary under the administration of Governor Joho, according to a local media outlet.
She declared on her Facebook page that the photos circulating online depicting romantic times with the county administrator are personal and have nothing to do with her work on the commission.
“I am a person of dignity with a personal life that allows me to associate with whomever I like.” She said
This has generated conflicting comments online, with the majority of netizens criticizing her for boycotting a national event.
