IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati

IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati has called for a crisis meeting with commissioners to help solve the current crisis this coming after the high court on Friday declined to block Ezra Chiloba`s compulsory leave.

Through a memo sent to the acting chief executive officer Marjan Hussein Marjan, top directors and managers the commission on Saturday, Chebukati has not indicated the agenda of the meeting expected to kick off at 9 am.

However this could bare fruits and bring some relief to that commission under siege.

The IEBC leadership wrangles originated from public differences between the chairman and the CEO, Chebukati asking Chiloba to take a leave early last year and confessing that he was in doubt of whether the commission would be able to conduct credible elections.

The woes also being as a result of procurement of tenders in the same commission others citing to personal issues between the bosses.

Chiloba early this week had appealed to the High Court seeking for the court to cancel his uncalled for leave which went unsuccessful.

Justice Stephen Radido on Friday while making the judgment said that the nature of Chiloba`s job position couldn’t allow the case be overruled at the moment.

This comes even as the election body continues to face criticism on whether it`s up to the task of conducting any other general election in Kenya.
