Dossier: Akombe exposes IEBC again

Details of an explosive ‘End of Assignment’ report by former IEBC commissioner Roselyn Akombe have emerged six months after her controversial resignation from the electoral urgency.

Dr Akombe resigned in a statement sent from New York, where she was based as she worked for the UN before she took the IEBC job.

In the statement, Dr Akombe said the October 26 repeat poll as planned did not meet the basic expectations of credibility and fairness.

“The commission in its current state can surely not guarantee a credible election on October 26. I do no want to be party to such a mockery to electoral integrity,” read her statement in part.

Last week, three more commissioners; Paul Kurgat, Margaret Mwachanya and Connie Maina also quit in what they called lack of leadership by chairman Wafula Chebukati.

But an explosive report by Akombe unearths irreconcilable differences in the commission, pointing out poor working relationship between the commission and secretariat.

“Ezra Chiloba kept commissioners in darkness on procurement. His handling of technology aspect was suspicious,” she states.

The former commissioner adds: “At Bomas, transmission of results was delayed for three hours and suspiciously, the margin between Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga was constant.”

Further, Akombe accuses Chiloba of deliberately delaying procurement of ballot papers adding that commissioners were held captive by the secretariat.

In her recommendation, Akombe adds, parliament should move with speed and scrap the secretariat and in addition, give the chairman veto powers.
