Details Emerge On What Chebukati Is Doing Secretly As Divisions Deepen In IEBC

As information about what IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati is covertly doing in office while on terminal leave emerges, there is a new uproar at the commission's headquarters in anniversary towers.

Senior IEBC personnel have alleged in interviews with The Nation that Chebukati is still in charge of anniversary towers and that his decisions, along with those of IEBC CEO Marjan Hussein, regarding important appointments are being made unilaterally.

According to the complainants, Chebukati secretly promoted important employees, such as the director of voter registration and education, the head of boundaries research, the head of transport and training, the director of finance and others.

Additionally, despite a directive from president William Ruto for government and state officials to implement austerity measures to decrease expenditures, Chebukati and others are accused of making unneeded foreign trips.

Top officials reportedly visited the United Kingdom, Malaysia, the United States, Mozambique, South Africa and Dubai last month. Prior to IEBC officials traveling to Dubai for another 10 days of the same training, an IT training is claimed to have taken place in Tanzania and Uganda.
