As his term as head of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) comes to an end, outgoing chairman William Ruto has received his exit report.
The handover event took place on Tuesday at State House, where 15 other commissioners were also handing up their exit findings.
The report and a post-election evaluation report, which was released on Monday, were given over by Mr. Chebukati on behalf of the whole electoral commission.
He then took the podium, repeating that he was happy with the way the August 2022 election was handled and that the groundwork had been prepared for the incoming team that would be in charge of the next phase of voting.
The end of the most recent election cycle and the start of a new one through 2027 were marked by the passage of his exit report and post-election evaluation report, he added.
He also expressed confidence that the commission will continue to function effectively under the direction of CEO Hussein Marjan and the new group of commissioners.
"In 2022, we held free, fair, trustworthy, and transparent elections. We have established frameworks that the incoming team should build upon, as well as manuals and standard operating procedures. Our CEO Marjan heads a capable secretariat "said he.
Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula, Attorney General Justin Muturi, and Senate Speaker Amason Kingi were all present at the ceremony as well as Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi.
Along with commissioners Abdi Guliye and Boya Molu, Chebukati leaves. The commission's terms are six years long.
