MP calls on IEBC Chair Chebukati to resign

Top city law firm linked to Chebukati got IEBC tenders

"The events related to the purported vote (to suspend chief executive) have greatly shaken our already feeble confidence in the chair", IEBC vice-chairperson Consolata Nkatha Maina and commissioners Margaret Mwachanya and Paul Kurgat said in a statement, adding that not all of the six commissioners were present, as required, when the vote happened.

TUKO.co.ke understands the move by Chebukati in agreement with commissioners Abdi Guliye and Boya Molu to send Chiloba home informed Maina, Kurgat and Mwachanya's decision to reign.

In a statement, the three commissioners accused the chairman, Wafula Chebukati, of turning the commission into a space for "scrambling and chasing individual glory and credit". "There is no plenary meeting, only regular management meeting", Limo said. He said he knew of their resignation through the media like every other Kenyan.

The conflict at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) boiled over yesterday after half of the current commissioners resigned "with immediate effect".

On the other hand, the PERA proposal could include changes to the retirement age and other measures to shore up the vastly underfunded program within 30 years.

On Monday, former CEO James Oswago told the Committee that the commission never had a contract with Face Technologies over the procurement of the hand-held devices.

Equally, they said, the meeting should have taken place when all commissioners were in the country, referring to Mwachanya who was in Dubai at the time.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has announced several openings to Kenyans.

"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. "This is a fundamental principle of corporate governance and does not in any way amount to weakness", he said.

Trump Campaign Raises $10.1 Million as Legal Matters Grow
Trump has opted - unlike presidents before him - to begin actively fundraising in the early part of his first term. Trump filed for reelection in the day when he took office, what was an unusual step for an incumbent President.

Senate majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen said Chebukati and the two remaining commissioners should resign within a week or a tribunal would be formed to investigate them.

He said their decision to resign demonstrates lack of capacity to lead in hard times and accommodate divergent views.

Treasury CS Henry Rotich is meanwhile expected to appear before the National Assembly Public Accounts Committee on Tuesday to shed light on the controversial procurement of the extra kits.
