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