A senior official at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has been relieved of his duties.

Lawy Aura, the IEBC procurement director, was sent home after it was established that there were delays in receiving ballot papers.

The Commission highlighted that this could have put the August 8 Elections in an uncertain state.

Divulging the information on its Twitter account, IEBC noted: “The Commission has relieved the Procurement Director Mr. Lawy Aura of his duties. We are addressing the delayed sourcing of ballot papers”.

According to the electoral body, Mr Aura had also breached the law by enjoining  its accounting officer in the tender process.

IEBC also found out that the Sh2.5 billion tender for supply and delivery of ballot papers was illegally done.

This comes days after, IEBC Director for ICT - James Muhati - was sent home on a compulsory leave.

Muhati was accused of sabotage leading to the decision made by IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati, CEO Ezra Chiloba and other commissioners.

It was also alleged that Muhati refused to cooperate in an ongoing audit of ICT systems.
