Chebukati says yet to receive quit letters by 3 Commissioners

Wafula Chebukati

Mwachanya was reading a resignation letter on behalf of two other colleagues - deputy chairperson Consolata Maina and commissioner Paul Kurgat.

"The institution has continued to be dysfunctional, with arbitrary decision-making, leaking of internal documents and pursuing of personal interests", the three officials from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission said in a statement they released at a news conference in Nairobi.

Cootow and Associates, founded by Mr Chebukati in February 2006, has represented the Independent Electoral and Boundaries (IEBC) in at least six election petitions.

He further alleged that Ruto wanted suspended IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba back at the commission's helm by all means.

In his affidavit, Chiloba had told the court that the decision to have him go on compulsory leave was prejudicial since he was not accorded an opportunity to defend himself.

"The chairman has, in several instances, failed to be the steady and stable hand to steer the commission ship", the statement added.

"The resignations at the IEBC are a symptom of an incurable and cancerous disease that bedevils the commission".

Three Kenyan election officials resigned on Monday, increasing chaos at the electoral Commission following last year's botched presidential vote that had to be rerun and was then boycotted by the opposition.

Last year's election re-run raised fears of a return to political violence in Kenya where more than 1 200 people were killed after a disputed poll in 2007, although President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga appeared to put their fierce rivalry behind them last month. Kenya's opposition claimed some commissioners in Kenya's six-member electoral authority were complicit in electoral fraud in the August 8 election in which Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the victor but was then nullified by the Supreme Court.

Kenyatta won reelection after the main opponent dropped out of the race, saying electoral officials failed to make necessary reforms.
