IEBC replaces 'chicken eating' officials

20 March 2015, 15:00 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has appointed commissioners in three vacant positions of the Support Services deputy CEO, ICT director and Finance director.

Marjan Hussein has been appointed Support Services CEO to replace the sacked Wilson Shollei, James Buyekane as ICT director replacing Dismas Ong’ondi while Osman Ibrahim as the Finance director replaced Edward Karisa.

The IEBC chair, Isaac Hassan disclosed that the sacking of Shollei, Ong’ondi and Hussein resulted from the commission’s departmental realignment in response to the 2013 general elections that encountered some problems.

Although Shollei and Karisa are face with corruption charges alongside the former IEBC CEO, James Oswago whose tenure had expired, Hassan maintained that the dual sacking was not as a result of the corruption allegations.

He said the commission had options of either extending their tenure for a second term or replace them as per IEBC’s laid down laws.

Marjan was working at Telkom Kenya Limited as Head of Audit, Investigation and Quality; Buyekane was working at Kenya Airways as Head of Information Systems while Ibrahim was working at the Kenya School of Government as Deputy CEO, Finance and Administration.

The recently appointed IEBC CEO, Ezra Chiloba expressed confidence in the newly appointed officers where he said their wider experience in the public service will contribute to the commission’s effectiveness in serving citizens and restoration of its lost public trust.

The commission advertised the three positions in August 2014 after the sacking of the officers.
