As Wafula Chebukati retires as Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman, several people are giving their thoughts on how the commission should be managed going forward. 

Dr Fred Ogola says there is one thing that needs to be done to IEBC so that it becomes independent and stops dividing Kenyans. According to Ogola, IEBC needs to another body to control its operations so that it does not receive instructions from other quarters. He says without that some Kenyans will continue complaining about the electoral commission and it will never be seen as independent.

Ogola says currently the IEBC is receiving commands from all quarters and it will be difficult for it to remain independent. He has noted that it is time to do things differently. 

Chebukati goes out at a time when Azimio believes that Chebukati is the worst person at the commission for denying them victory when they had it. Kenya Kwanza and President Ruto sees Chebukati as a big hero who safeguarded their win.

Each team is accusing the other for having tried to compromise the independent body to interfere with the election results. Ogola says it is high time Kenyans stopped the madness by establishing a body that oversees the operations of IEBC.
