Roselyn Akombe reveals worrying details on Chiloba

Akombe who resigned from the IEBC a few days ago spilled the beans on Chiloba's actions at the commission.

Akombe claims that Chiloba misled IEBC officials on servers issues during the August 8 polls where President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the winner by the electoral commission and which the Supreme Court later nullified.

Last month, the IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati sent out a damning memo addressed to Chiloba in which he demanded answers on why his personal account was created and used to undertake 9,934 transactions in the commission's server without his knowledge and consent.

Chebukati also demanded  to know why the satellite phones bought by the IEBC were not used to relay data from polling stations as it was supposed to be.

Chiloba in the letter was asked to explain why the Kenya Integrated Elections Management System (KIEMS) kits used in the election were not locked to specific locations as it had been agreed.

The Chair also raised questions why some forms used in the election did not have security features as agreed between IEBC and the printer.

Akombe who resigned from the commission this week, said Chiloba's absence would still not assure a credible repeat election.

Chiloba is said to have taken a three-week break and will be away during Thursday’s repeat presidential election.

According to sources close to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, Mr Chiloba took a “personal decision to be away in order to build confidence in stakeholders” who had complained about commission officials.
