Kenya: Three IEBC Commissioners Resign After Fallout With Chebukati

Three commissioners from Kenya's electoral commission say they've resigned over the suspension of the chief executive officer who was sent on compulsory leave to pave way for wider investigations into the conduct of the commission in last year's elections.

"The Commission Chair has failed to be the steady and stable hand that t steers the ship in hard times and gives directions when needed", declared the officials.

"Instead, under the leadership, 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", the commissioners said in a statement.

"The chairman has in several instances failed to be rye steady and stable hand to steer the commission ship", Ms Mwachanya said in a joint statement.

Former IEBC CEO James Oswago has faulted Ezra Chiloba for paying Sh250 million for the supply of additional electronic voter identification devices used in the 2013 general election.

"The institution has continued to be dysfunctional, with arbitrary decision-making, leaking of internal documents".

The head of the Electoral Law and Governance Institute in Africa, Felix Odhiambo, says the overhaul of the commission means it will be hard to know what happened in 2017 presidential vote.

"Given this severe deterioration of confidence in the commission chair, we find our position as commissioners under his leadership no longer tenable", she said. "Consequently we regret to announce our resignation from the commission with immediate effect", they said. Abdi Yakub Guliye and Boya Molu.

Vice-chairwoman consulate Nkatha is among those who resigned.
