Drama as 2 commissioners who quit IEBC roles ‘resume’ work

Drama unfolded at Anniversary Towers Friday when the two IEBC commissioners who had purportedly resigned showed up at their offices prompting protests by chairman Wafula Chebukati.

Sources said the four went to IEBC by their own means but remaining commissioners and other staff reportedly ignored them.

“They’ve been holed up in their respective offices since they arrived,” said the source.

In April this year, IEBC vice chairperson Connie Nkatha Maina and commissioners Margaret Mwachanya and Paul Kurgat said they had left the commission because they have no faith in the chairman’s leadership.

The two who have been in the office since morning are Ms Maina and Ms Mwachanya.

A source at the commission says they’re using the window created by the High Court which noted as obiter dictum that they did not follow proper channel to resign.

That was contained in the ruling by Justice W. Okwany in Petition No. 212 of 2018.
