Chebukati, commissioners vow to stay put

Chebukati, commissioners vow to stay put”

New details have emerged that the state has restored security for IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati and two commissioners amid rising calls for the disbandment of the commission.

NASA co -principal Musalia Mudavadi says the resignation of the three IEBC commissioners, Vice Chair Consolata Maina, Ambassador Paul Kurgat and Margaret Mwachana was a clear testimony that electoral fraud was committed.

Chebukati told journalists the decision to send commission CEO Ezra Chiloba was not an indictment but an opportunity to audit and establish how resources allocated to the commission were used. "Part of post-election review process, and a matter of great interest to the stakeholders, is how significant sums of public money have been expended by the commission", Chebukati said.

At a press conference Friday evening, the team led by Chebukati instead called for the immediate replacement of commissioners who have so far disengaged from the commission.

The obligation to provide security, over which Mr Limo said they had written to the Inspector-General, should be throughout the commissioner's tenure, and "ceases only when the contract expires".

Chebukati at the same time disclosed that Chiloba continued to enjoy his full benefits and entitlements as he paves way for the audit. "If found culpable by the audit, he will be subjected to disciplinary proceedings in accordance with the right to fair hearing".

"The supposition that the Commission had ganged up against any officer is not only misleading but only serves to divert attention from the real issues", he said as he defended the only two other commissioners who supported Chiloba's suspension.
