Chiloba fights Chebukati after the decision to send him on compulsory leave

Chiloba vs Chebukati

Mr. Chiloba has questioned the procedure used to make the decision that was supported by Chebukati, commissioners Boya Molu, and Prof Abdi Guliye. However, IEBC Deputy Chair Consolata Maina and Commissioner Dr. Paul Kurgat were against it.

In a letter to Ms. Maina, the IEBC CEO claimed that the decision was unfair stating that there were several loopholes in the procedure.

“As the aggrieved person in this matter, I wish to state that I am not opposed to proceeding on leave. However, you must bear in mind that there are some procedural gaps in that decision leading to injustice and unfairness,” Chiloba’s letter was quoted by the Nation.

He also questioned why he and his deputy Marjan Hussein were excluded from the meeting. The IEBC boss argued that their absence meant that there were no minutes taken during the meeting.

Chiloba is set to hand over to his deputy Mr. Hussein, who will remain in charge while he is on leave.

News of IEBC’s decision to send Chiloba on compulsory leave hit headlines on Monday. He was sent home over procurement procedure of electoral material that needs to undergo auditing.

In a statement, Mr. Chebukati mentioned: "The Commissions’ plenary meeting held on Friday 6th April received and discussed an audit report on some procurement matters.
