IEBC bosses need to exit of­fice ASAP, they are too costly

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

Although no fig­ures have been ar­rived at regarding the IEBC exit pack­age, tax­pay­ers could end up fork­ing out mil­lions of shillings to pay nine elec­toral chiefs af­ter a deal for their exit was reached last week. This is the cost of democ­racy. Elec­tions (Amende­ment) Law 2016 only takes ef­fect on Oc­to­ber 4 (to­day), mean­ing com­mis­sion­ers could not have re­signed be­fore then. But in or­der to save our econ­omy from fur­ther losses run­ning into hun­dreds of mil­lions of shillings, the Is­sack Has­san-led team should quit as soon as to­day.
