Chebukati speaks on resigning after shock exit of three commissioners from IEBC

Top city law firm linked to Chebukati got IEBC tenders

"The removal of a CEO is a weighty matter, and is one that should not have been introduced as a by-the-way", the commissioners said in reference to the argument that Mr Chebukati had ambushed the other commissioners with the agenda.

The conflict at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) boiled over yesterday after half of the current commissioners resigned "with immediate effect".

IEBC commissioners Paul Kurgat (left), Margaret Mwachanya (centre) and Connie Maina at Stanley Hotel in Nairobi on April 16, 2018 where they announced their resignation from the commission.

"Under his leadership, the Commission boardroom has become a venue for peddling misinformation, grounds for brewing mistrust, and a space for scrambling for and chasing for individual glory and credit", the trio added.

IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati said in a statement on Monday evening that the three officials who quit "have not returned the public assets entrusted to them" and said that the commission's "operations are on course" despite the resignations and the ongoing audit.

The commission through its Twitter account had earlier indicated that it suspended Chiloba following a decision reached by the majority, something that Chiloba dismissed.

"Through the Speaker, I will invite the JLAC to move with speed and see how they can resolve the stalemate and possibly allow for a transitional exit for the remaining commissioners", he said. Abdi Guliye and Boya Molu. "The commission will give a comprehensive statement at an appropriate time", he said in a statement.

"My call for IEBC Commissioners to resign is informed by recent wrangles linked to the fight for tenders plus control and manipulation of IEBC staff", Murkomen said. "Without a doubt, it undermines the legitimacy of the Jubilee administration and confirms that its election was an electoral fraud", he claimed.

The commissioners' resignation leaves in office three other commissioners after Roselyn Akombe resigned in October previous year saying she feared for her safety and that the IEBC as then constituted could not hold credible repeat elections. "Otherwise, the country will go through a political circus around an issue which has tremendous and significant constitutional importance", he said.
