Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati has suspended the commission’s CEO Ezra Chiloba.

Chiloba has been sent on three-month compulsory leave.

IEBC Communication Manager Andrew Limo told the media that he was aware Chiloba was served with the leave notice.

“I understand there is a letter on CEO’s suspension touching on procurement issues, but I have not yet seen it,” he said.

In October 2017, Chiloba bowed to pressure and took a three week break during the repeat presidential elections.

Raila and other NASA leaders accused them of mismanaging the August 8, 2017 elections that would be nullified by the Supreme Court.

At the time, Chiloba’s decision to go on leave exposed cracks within the poll commission with some backing the calls for his resignation.
