During a meeting the three had at their Anniversary Towers-based offices, they also contemplated of suing Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet for withdrawing their security.

Their security details were recalled on Monday afternoon, hours after vice chair Connie Maina and commissioners Paul Kurgat and Margaret Mwachanya resigned, accusing Chebukati of poor leadership.

“We are consulting and taking legal advice on this matter before we proceed,” one commissioner was quoted by The Star.

The withdrawal of security provided under their contracts has exposed them to danger and made it difficult for them to perform their duties, they complained.

Other commissioners also had a bodyguard and a driver and their Nairobi and rural homes were guarded by police.

But as the commissioners came to grips with the reality of losing three colleagues, politicians from both sides of the divide have been busy crafting their future.
