Azimio-One Kenya Coalition Members of Parliament have given the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) 48 hours to reinstate Deputy CEO, Rose Kulundu who was been interdicted by the Commission earlier today after falling out with Chairperson Wafula Chebukati and CEO Hussein Marjan.
Addressing members of the fourth estate at Serena Hotel in Nairobi on Wednesday afternoon, the MPs led by Majority Leader Opiyo Wandayi and his deputy Sabina Chege said the IEBC was harassing its officers in total disregard of the law, something that has hindered the body from performing its duties according to the Constitution.
The Deputy CEO who has been at loggerheads with the body’s CEO Hussein Marjan is believed to be the whistleblower who exposed the massive irregularities in the procurement of poll materials – a secret exercise under the watch of CEO Marjan and Chair Wafula Chebukati.
Ms. Kulundu has been the Commission’s Secretary for Operations since March this year.
Sources within IEBC say the Deputy CEO’s interdiction is part of a wider power play and realignments taking place in the electoral body which will see Chairperson Wafula Chebukati and CEO Hussein Marjan have a firm grip on the commission.
