MP calls on IEBC Chair Chebukati to resign

IEBC commissioners resign

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.

Under Chebukati's leadership, they said, "the commission boardroom has become a venue for peddling misinformation, grounds for brewing mistrust, and a space for scrambling for and chasing individual glory and credit".

He further alleged that Ruto wanted suspended IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba back at the commission's helm by all means.

He said former chairperson Consolata Nkatha and commissioner Paul Kurgat were at a plenary meeting on April 6 that unanimously resolved to send Chiloba home.

Tumult continues at Kenya's independent electoral commission (IEBC) almost seven months after elections ended. "Consequently, we regret to announce our resignation from the commission with immediate effect". "It has become increasingly hard to appear on television to defend positions I disagree with in the name of collective responsibility", said Dr Akombe in her statement announcing her resignation. "And pursuing of personal interests", the commissioners said in a statement.

Senate majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen said Chebukati and the two remaining commissioners should resign within a week or a tribunal would be formed to investigate them. By law, the commission must have four active members to carry out business.

According to Orengo, the Agency was first held tight by the state to allegedly rig elections in the presidential elections past year.

Dr Mulyungi said the decision by the commissioners to quit gives credence to the concerns raised by NASA during and after the 2017 August general election. "Where does this leave election management in this country?"

Three Kenyan election officials resigned on Monday, increasing chaos at the electoral Commission following last year's botched presidential vote that had to be rerun and was then boycotted by the opposition.

The commission conducted another election in October, President Uhuru Kenyatta won that vote in a landslide, after challenger Raila Odinga pulled out of the race.

Chebukati said he resolved to send Chiloba on compulsory leave in keeping in line with the Commission's legal duty of ensuring resources allocated to IEBC are not wasted or embezzled.
