Chebukati announces way forward after 3 IEBC commissioners resigned

Chebukati announces way forward after 3 IEBC commissioners resigned

"The Commission Chairperson has failed to be the steady and stable hand that steers the ship in hard times and give direction when needed".

He further alleged that Ruto wanted suspended IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba back at the commission's helm by all means. "Instead, under his leadership the commission's boardroom has become a venue for peddling money, misinformation, grounds for brewing mistrust and a space for scrambling for individual glory and credit", said Ms. Mwachanya as she read the joint statement.

The announcement by Nkatha, Kurgat, and Mwachanya on Monday came ahead of an anticipated plenary meeting that was to be chaired by Chebukati who returned to the country from an election conference in Nigeria. It was first captured by the State to rig the presidential election previous year and then the commissioners and senior staff became greedy players in the procurement process and the business undertaken by the commission.

"Chairman is back and in office".

Upon nullification of August 8 polls, commissioner Roselyn Akombe was first to exit the scene, citing external interference in the commission. There are no longer good or bad commissioners at IEBC.

The quorum is set at five by the IEBC Act.

On Friday, Chiloba moved to court seeking orders to suspend Chebukati orders, but the labour court declined.

"The resignations at the IEBC are a symptom of an incurable and cancerous disease that bedevils the commission".

In a statement seen by TUKO.co.ke, Orengo demanded the disbandment of the entire commission since it has failed accountability, efficiency and accuracy tests as stipulated in the constitution.

Technically, the Chebukati-led team can not conduct any business due to lack of quorum.

Moving forward, Kega said the number of commissioners serving in the electoral commission should be reduced to five.

"Given this severe deterioration of confidence in the commission chair, we find our position as commissioners under his leadership no longer tenable", she said.
