IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati has admitted that he can't guarantee credible polls

He also said that it is difficult for him to move forward with a divided commission

As Kenya’s political crisis deepens, Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chair Wafula Chebukati admitted that he cannot guarantee free, fair and credible polls on October 26th.

The country was shocked by the resignation of one of IEBC’s commissioners, Roselyn Akombe, who left the country saying that the commission was under siege.

She sent her letter of resignation while in New York, USA on Wednesday, 18th October 2017.

In a detailed statement, Chebukati explained the challenges facing him and the Commission, also condemning political leaders who have failed to put their interests aside.

Here’s his full statement:
