IEBC not affected by absence of CEO - Chebukati

One of the shortlisted candidates, Mr Marjan, has been serving the IEBC as CEO on an acting capacity since Ezra Chiloba was ousted.

Chairman Wafula Chebukati has often the public that operations at the commission have been running smoothly without a CEO.

"We have an acting CEO and commission secretary and all our programs are going on well," he stated earlier in the week.
