Why IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba Is Set To Leave His Job At The Commission

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) C.E.O Ezra Chiloba has revealed his plans to quit the commission after conducting a smooth exercise in the just concluded elections.

During an interview with the Business Daily, Mr Chiloba said that he is proud to have served in the IEBC but he is not going in for the second term.

“Whilst I love challenges, the only thing I don’t like is doing the same thing over and over again. I avoid monotony.

This was an unparalleled experience and I’m glad so far, all the efforts invested in the last two and a half years, have gotten us to where we are. Would I do this again? I think that’s gone. It’s passed,” he explained as reported by the Business Daily.

Chiloba,who initially served as UNDP Programme Analyst, revealed that his life goals are geared toward the corporate world.

“Although my ambition after I left the UN was to join the private sector, I wanted to be a CEO in some private sector at the age of 39. Now I’m 39,” he said.

According to the Constitution, full-time commissioners and holders of independent offices, such as the IEBC CEO’s, shall only serve for a limited period of one term of six years.

“A member of a commission, or the holder of an independent office—(a) unless ex officio, shall be appointed for a single term of six years and is not eligible for re-appointment,” Article 250 (6) of the Law stipulates.

He also had a few words for his successor;

“You got no friends in town so just do your job. Since it’s a political process, it doesn’t matter how long it takes just stick to the rules.

“Also, never ever receive praise from a politician because they’ll abandon you the next day. A politician doesn’t love you, there’s nothing like that. It’s self-interest,” he advised.
