The electoral commission is in the process of replacing retired or sacked managers.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has advertised the positions of directors for human resource, legal affairs, and procurement just days after sending its chief executive, Ezra Chiloba, on compulsory leave.
Interested candidates were required to submit their applications on the portal, https://www.iebc.or.ke/iebcjobs, by Friday. Shortlisted applicants will be required to get clearance from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, the Kenya Revenue Authority, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, and the Higher Education Loans Board.
They will also have to present clearance from professional bodies where applicable. IEBC has also called for expression of interest from qualified human resource firms to officer consultancy services.
“The consultancy firm will undertake the initial interview with appropriate recommendations for final selection of the successful candidates for the positions of director supply chain management, director legal and public affairs, and director human resource management and administration,” a public notice that appeared last Friday reads.
Interested firms have been given just a week to put in their bids, with the deadline being April 20.
Last year, IEBC sent away its director for procurement, Lawy Aura, for allegedly bungling procurement deals, among them the Sh2.5 billion tender for ballot papers.
