Chebukati's team issue tough demand before agreeing to resign

Crisis at IEBC

Four IEBC commissioners have resigned in the past seven months, leaving IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati with only two commissioners – Prof Abdi Guliye and Boya Molu.

The remaining commissioners cannot meet the needed quorum to make any decisions that are binding on the commission.

Those who have already resigned will only get gratuity for their service since January 2017.

The Chebukati team is keen on a negotiated package that will see them pocket nearly Sh100 million each for forfeited salaries and gratuity.

IEBC Chairman gets a Sh1.2 million salary and has 58 months to complete his six-year term.

For salaries alone, Chebukati could get Sh81.2 million while his other two commissioners will get Sh69.6 million each.

The terminal emoluments could see the amounts go as high as Sh100 million for each commissioner.

“Parliament will take a lead in resolving this crisis and we will look for the best way out, including a negotiated exit for the remaining three,” Duale stated.
