- IEBC officials Vice Chair Connie Maina, Commissioners Paul Kurgat and Margaret Mwachanya have resigned
- The officials citing a lack of faith in the Chairman Wafula Chebukati
Three Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) officials Vice Chair Connie Maina, Commissioners Paul Kurgat and Margaret Mwachanya have resigned citing lack of faith in Chairman Wafula Chebukati.
Chebukati has called for a crisis meeting today (Monday 16 April) to try and forestall the fall out within the commission following a move by his Deputy Connie Maina asking embattled CEO Ezra Chiloba to disregard a suspension order.
Chiloba's suspension which is now a subject of a court case has threatened to split the commission with a certain group of commissioners expressing their displeasure at the ongoing at the electoral body.
The resignation has since caused a lot of mixed reactions on social media;
IEBC Commissioners Resignation is a joke! The whole commission should go!— Bryan Burke Kopite (@BM_Nyakundi) April 16, 2018
Time for IEBC chair and the entire commission to go home! Vice chair and some two other commissioners have read the signs early enough and have stepped aside! Looks like this IEBC swamp will be finally drained sooner than later!— THE TRUE PATRIOT™ (@johnnguyo1) April 16, 2018
i remember very well when Akombe resigned people called her names...now the same commissioners who banished her are walking away...shame on them...working for IEBC is a thankless job https://t.co/2AeMV2n8U4— moha mogeni (@MogenMohammed) April 16, 2018
IEBC Vice chair and two other commissioners resign .

Resigning should not sanitize criminal IEBC commissioners like Connie Maina & Paul Kurgat. It is clear they had their job cut out, to coronet Uhuru Kenyatta and leave. They must pay for their criminal activities at IEBC. They must tell us who killed Msando!— Musamali ? (@austinmusamali) April 16, 2018
IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati is poor master of the art of timing. He was to resign before October 26 coronation of UhuRuto, now he has collapsed out of his own contradiction. End time. Good riddance!— Augustine Alanga (@AugustineAlanga) April 16, 2018
It's not lack of trust. IEBC Commissioners are being haunted for what they did during the election, rem Kivuitu? Akombe new and washed her hands before the damage, She is now doing well and she even got a promotion.#ChiloScam— Amedo Shair (@AmedoShair) April 16, 2018
Sideshows by the 3 IEBC Commissioners, is a deviation from the real matters such as procurement and corruption. Have they been asked by their master to quite to avoid the coming probe?— Black Diamond (@kaukujunior) April 16, 2018
