Ezra Chiloba makes comeback

Chiloba's comeback comes just four days into the new year.

Chiloba officially resumed his official duties on Thursday, January 4, 2018 at the commission's head offices at the Anniversary Towers.

The IEBC CEO has been away from work for 45 days after a controversial stint leading before and after the August 8 elections.

Personal decision

Chiloba announced he had taken a three-week leave from the commission just days to the repeat-election held on October 26 saying his was a personal decision to take leave in light of the opposition’s demands, without giving more details.

"This is the first time I'm taking leave since my son was born. He turns two years (old) in two weeks' time," Chiloba was quoted by Reuters News Agency.

The CEO was at the centre of controversy during the poll period with the NASA coalition led by Raila Odinga demanding his removal from office insisting there would be no elections with him at the helm of the commission.

NASA boycott

Despite Chiloba announcement ahead of the October 26 repeat polls, Odinga and his team boycotted the elections and accused the CEO of still working behind the scenes despite him announcing he had taken leave.

"Chiloba is still in office. He is still in office as we speak. We will not be treated as fools," Odinga declared.

He said the move by the IEBC CEO to take leave was to hoodwink NASA to participate in the repeat election.
