According to one of his staff,who spoke to The Star in anonymity,Chebukati was struck by news of the resignation of his 3 colleagues.

“The chairman was caught totally unawares. When he started the meeting, he told us that Mwachanya was away on official duty, Kurgat was on leave and Maina was on her way to attend the meeting,” a member of staff said.

“He also told us that work will continue even as staff challenged him to explain if the commission was properly constituted with quorum to transact business.”
