Kenya electoral commissioners resign from IEBC

Kenya electoral commissioners resign from IEBC

"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.

Troubled IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati has spoken for the first time of his resignation form the Commission after half of the team resigned on Monday, citing lack of confidence in his leadership skills.

Sources indicate that Chebukati was struck by news of the resignation of his Vice Chair Connie Maina, Commissioners Paul Kurgat and Margret Wanjala.

Just hours after the resignation of the three, Senate majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen hinted at forming a committee to push out the IEBC chairman.

"Chebukati, Molu & Guliye MUST resign from IEBC within the next 7 days or we form a tribunal to investigate them", Murkomen said in a tweet.

"For far too long and way too many times, the commission chair has failed to be the steady and stable hand that steers the ship in hard times and give direction when needed", Mwachanya told journalists at a city hotel.

The commission, which has been at war since the lead-up to the August 8, 2017 elections, has become dysfunctional due to external interference, the commissioners said in a statement read by Ms Mwachanya.

In a joint statement sent to newsrooms, the commissioners claimed Chiloba was hurriedly sent on a compulsory leave, a decision that was arrived at without involvement of all the six IEBC commissioners as required by law. However, he said the commission would give an official statement on the way forward upon receiving the letters.

"Without a doubt a doubt it undermines the legitimacy of the Jubilee administration and confirms that its election was an electoral fraud", he added.

"The mistake we made was when we diverted from the legal framework put in place after new constitution on the process of constituting a new IEBC commission", said Duale who wants Chebukati and the remaining two commissioners left to resign. "Otherwise, the country will go through a political circus around an issue which has tremendous and significant constitutional importance", he said.
