The coming Damnation IEBC

PAC (Public Accounts Committee) will soon be dropping another hammer on IEBC which will be further damning the already tarnished IEBC .  A “damning” report on the conduct and expenditures of IEBC in the 2017 general elections, Chairman Opiyo Wandayi has said.

“We are going to expose the rot in IEBC as soon as the house resumes this week,” he said. He hinted that mismanagement and extravagant spending by the IEBC triggered the PAC to vigorously investigate the body from last year. “The investigations majorly dealt with the expenditure of IEBC during the last general elections and the glaring lapses in the last general elections,” Wandayi said. Wandayi said IEBC is to be blamed for any misfortunes in the previous general elections for not conducting a free and fair elections dispute being fully funded.He said Ruto’s sentiments in which he commended the electoral body for conducting the last general elections as per everyone’s expectations should not be considered by anyone as there is “more than meets the eye”.

The Ugunja lawmaker told IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati to hold all his plans of revitalising the IEBC until the committee tables it’s findings in the floor of the house. “Chebukati should hold his horse and adapt the reports’ findings for the betterment of his tenure in office,” Wandayi said.Wandayi said all along, the Public Accounts Committee has been investigating the electoral body and the report is not appealing for the DP to defend the electoral body.


“On February 25, my committee is going to release a report on IEBC and that report will supercede all reports that have ever been written about IEBC,” Wandayi said.
