Ezra Chiloba


Former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba has denied allegations by IEBC’s Chair Wafula Chebukati that he single-handedly procured the Kenya Integrated Management Systems (KIEMS) kits. 

Appearing before the National Assembly’s Public Accounts Committee to answer audit queries on the 2016/17 financial year expenditures, the sacked CEO informed the Opiyo Wandayi led Public Accounts Committee that they discussed the issue in over seven meetings.

He added that the issue of (KIEMS) kits procurement was inclusive between the commissioners and the secretariat.

At the same time, Chiloba informed the commission that the change of law of elections and the coming in of a new commission changed the dynamics of the 2017 poll.

He said with the new commissioners, it was difficult to draw the line between their role and the role of the secretariat.
