Chiloba makes dramatic come-back demanding millions from IEBC

Back with a bang!

Former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chief executive officer Ezra Chiloba

Former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chief executive officer Ezra Chiloba, has made a dramatic come-back to the public, demanding millions from IEBS.

Chiloba who was shown the door about a year ago has taken the battle to the court and has sued the commission.

In a suit filed at the Employment and Labour Relations Court (ELRC No. 617 of 2019), Chiloba maintains that his employment was wrongfully terminated almost a year ago.

Chiloba whose exit at the commission was as dramatic as his short stay is demanding at least Sh52.5 million as compensation for the decision to sack him on October 12, 2018.

Through Wandabwa Advocates, Chiloba faults several actions taken by the commission leading to his eventual exit, terming them illegal, irregular, unfair and unjustifiable.

According to papers filed in court, the 06 April 2018 decision to send him on compulsory leave and his suspension on June 14, 2018 lacked a legal.

“The Claimant was not afforded an opportunity to be heard regarding the intention to send him on compulsory leave, before it was effected.

“The Claimants termination had already been predetermined, and was biased. Further the procedure undertaken before terminating the Claimant’s employment was an abrogation of the Claimant’s Constitutional Rights,” Chiloba submitted.
