IEBC changes locks to keep Chiloba out of office

This comes after the Labour and Relations Court allowed him to go back to work

According to Citizen Digital, locks to Chiloba’s office have been changed and his Secretary and Personal Assistant sent on leave.

This came after the Labour and Relations Court on Thursday ruled that Chiloba was free to resume his duties at the Anniversary Towers, pending hearing and determination of an application he filled challenging the decision that ordered him to go on a three month compulsory leave, to make way for an audit at the Electoral Commission.


The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission CEO Ezra Chiloba was sent on another compulsory leave hours after the court revoked previous orders issued by Chairman Wafula Chebukati.

In a circular, Chebukati explained that since Chiloba was the accounting officer at the Commission, it was imperative for him to stay out of office as auditing of major procurement involving the 2017 General Election is completed.
