Saturday October 20, 2018-Some top IEBC officials are facing the sack barely a week after former CEO, Ezra Chiloba, was sacked.
This is after reports emerged that they stole billions in the last year’s election.
According to reports, the over 25 staff were allegedly embroiled in dubious expenditures amounting to Ksh4.6 billion during last year’s two elections.
The 25 were expected to explain their roles in the payments of dubious expenditure alongside the sacked IEBC CEO, Ezra Chiloba.
The letters signed by acting CEO, Marjan Hussein Marjan, triggered perception that the predestination of some staff associated with Chiloba was sealed and that they are going home.
IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati has already sent the names of the 25 to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) and the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) for further investigations and possible prosecution.
“Those who were involved in inflating the cost of elections, whoever they are, whether they are staff, commissioners or even myself, they should be arrested,” Chebukati stated.
