Commissioners to scuttle their replacement
SEE ALSO :Group eyes IEBC law on hiring top chiefCheptumo said former IEBC vice Chair Connie Nkatha Maina and Commissioner Margaret Mwachanya were deemed to have resigned and the committee will discuss the High Court ruling that overturned their resignation. Nkatha, Mwachanya, Paul Kurgat and Dr Roselyne Akombe had announced their resignation in April and left Chebukati with only two commissioners -- Guliye and Molu -- to manage the electoral body. When they announced their resignation at a press conference on April 6, the three commissioners said they had no faith in Chebukati and his leadership. Under Chebukati, they claimed the commission had become a venue for peddling misinformation, grounds for brewing mistrust and a space for scrambling for and chasing individual glory and credit. Immediately after the meeting scheduled for Thursday, Cheptumo said the committee will seek to end IEBC mess once and for all by putting in place a commission that will be above reproach and one that enjoys the confidence of Kenyans. “We will be shocked if the commissioners have been drawing salaries for the four to five months. We will confirm from the IEBC Chair before we decide the next course of action,” Cheptumo said.
