Friday November 30, 2018-Former IEBC CEO, Ezra Chiloba, has absolved himself from blame over the queries raised by the Auditor General, Edward Ouko, on the expenditure of billions of shillings at the poll body.
Appearing before the Public Accounts Committee yesterday, Chiloba dismissed IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati as a big liar, terming his reports that indicted him over procurement glitches at IEBC during the 2017 General Election as skewed and far from the truth.
“This explains why we are where we are.”
“Mr. Chairman and members, the loss of Ksh.9billion at IEBC would mean that there was absolutely no money for any of the critical procurements at the commission in the period under review.”
“Nothing could be further from the truth!” Chiloba retorted.
Chebukati has accused Chiloba of irregularly and single handedly procuring a number of IEBC contracts in 2017.
However, according to Chiloba, it is Chebukati that irregularly awarded his law firms IEBC contracts, among them to defend the commission in court.
