Cur­rent IEBC is tainted and can’t con­duct elec­tion

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

IEBC chair­man Wa­fula Che­bukati said he will make rad­i­cal changes at the com­mis­sion and sec­re­tariat, for­get­ting that he’s the cause of the prob­lem that we now have. The fail­ure by the IEBC to con­duct a free, fair, trans­par­ent and cred­i­ble elec­tion is be­cause the chair­man cov­ered up the wrongs com­mit­ted by the IEBC sec­re­tariat. Those elec­toral mal­prac­tices were com­mit­ted on his watch. It is he as the com­mis­sion boss and his staff who com­mit­ted these ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties and il­le­gal­i­ties. He can­not there­fore now turn around and blame the sec­re­tariat alone and ex­empt him­self. As he points at the sec­re­tariat, three of his fin­gers point at him. The IEBC in its cur­rent for­mat and with the cur­rent chair­man and CEO, Ezra Chiloba, can­not con­duct a cred­i­ble and peace­ful elec­tion be­cause they are now tainted. They should re­sign.
