Anger and despair were some of the emotions expressed by Kenyans on Twitter Monday morning following the resignation of three IEBC commissioners after a fallout with chairman Wafula Chebukati.

The three commissioners who announced their resignation are vice chair Connie Nkatha Maina, commissioners Margaret Mwachanya and Dr Paul Kurgat.

The commission’s woes begun during the 2017 General Elections over various anomalies during the election process.

In October 2017, Dr Roselyn Akombe became the first commissioner to throw in the towel citing political interference on IEBC’s mandate.

The troubles did not end there, Mr Chebukati and the commissions CEO Ezra Chiloba were also not seeing eye to eye, as the former kept pointing an accusing finger at Chiloba.

The unfolding drama at the IEBC has elicited mixed reactions from the online community. This is what they have to say.
