They have since deleted the Twitter post which had already went viral around the country.
Political analysts have however weighed into the matter saying Chebukati and his team wanted to reveal their true stand on the whole BBI exercise. They also think that IEBC could have been captured by outside forces ahead of the Referendum and the General 2022 elections.
