IEBC Official’s Brother Forced to Escape from Kenya

A few days to presidential election and a brother to IEBC official has been forced to run away the county

The 34-year-old, whose identity remains hidden due to security reason, is said to have escaped from the country through the Namanga border point on September 5.

According to the brother, he received numerous threat messages which he divulged was targeted at his sister and other commissioners.

“He left the country last week when the threats became too much,” Akombe was quoted by the Nation.

In a report by the local daily, the middle-aged man worked in one of the government ministries.

He reportedly avoided going through the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) for security reasons and instead traveled to Namanga by road, before crossing the border to neighboring Tanzania.

Dr. Akombe disclosed that her brother was forced to pass through five countries in eight days before finally landing to where he is currently hiding.

The IEBC official mentioned that she feels responsible for the current predicament the brother was in.

“He is a man who loves this country and had always resisted our attempts to get him something to do abroad.  I feel responsible for it. It feels bad but what can you do about it?” she posed.

Akombe, who took a leave of absence at the United Nations where she works added: “I have been to Somalia, Yemen, Jordan, Iraq and even Libya for security assessment missions but on a personal basis I have never felt this insecure”.
