OPIYO WANDAYI summons WAFULA CHEBUKATI to explain the loss of SH 9.4 BILLION at IEBC last year


Thursday October 25, 2018-National Assembly’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Chairman, Opiyo Wandayi has summoned Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman, Wafula Chebukati, over the loss of Sh 9.4 billion during the 2017 Presidential election.
According to the Auditor General, Edward Ouko, the commission has failed to explain the loss of Sh 9.4 billion during the heavily contested poll.
Ouko, in his audit analysis of the contracts awarded for the supply of goods and services used during the 2017 elections, revealed the commission could not satisfactorily explain millions awarded to contractors and suppliers, some who were unqualified.
Addressing the press at Parliament Buildings on Wednesday, Wandayi said the committee decided to prioritise the examination of the IEBC’s accounts due to the huge public interest that the commission has been attracting since last year’s elections.
“As PAC we have taken a pragmatic approach.”
“We have chosen to fast track examinations of IEBC for 2016/2017.”
“Letters have been dispatched.”
“It is a matter of great public interest,” said Wandayi.
“A casual glance at the report tells you a lot of public funds were stolen.”
“The committee will want to know who stole the money and how,” he added
 The committee chair asked Chebukati to appear on Tuesday next week and explain glaring inconsistencies.
