IEBC Chiefs: 2022 Poll Period Was A Challenging Moment For Us All

Yesterday, three departing IEBC chiefs spoke out about the terrifying ordeal they went through when calculating the results of the August 2017 presidential election.

Following the announcement of the presidential election results, Commissioner Abdi Guliye, CEO Marjan Hussein Marjan, and Commissioner Boya Molu all claimed they were threatened and harassed by "external forces," forcing them to go into hiding for three days.

I remember traveling to "Siberia" in my own nation with Commissioner Molu and Marjan. After leaving our phones at Bomas and notifying our security team, we hid out in a (Toyota) Noah and headed to an undisclosed place. Until recently, we would watch television news to find out what was going on in the country," Guliye stated at the release of the IEBC's Post-election Evaluation Report.

Chebukati, on the other hand, claims he waited three days for a visitor.

He said, "In the end, no one came," prompting amusement by adding that he had spent the entire time drinking tea in his apartment.

The six-year tenure of the three commissioners ends today, and seven new commissioners will be chosen to lead the electoral body for the next six years.

Guliye informed the audience that the difficulties they were having to deal with from State officials were made clear by the turmoil at Bomas of Kenya before and after the release of the presidential election results.
