Isaack Hassan speaks out after graft claims

20 November 2014, 15:25 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Isaack Hassan has called for expeditious and thorough investigations into the allegation of corruption at the electoral management body based on the prosecution opening statement in a criminal case in a UK court. 

In a statement, Hassan said no official of the IEBC has so far been served with any court summons but should anyone be found culpable, he or she must "be made to account for their actions according to the law."

“The Commission has no reason to doubt that the 2010 Referendum and 2013 general elections and all by-elections were conducted above board and those linking the corruption allegations with the credibility of the electoral process should have presented it as evidence during the petitions challenging the conduct of elections,” he said.

He cautioned against the politicizing and sensationalizing of the corruption allegations. 

“It would be fair and prudent for people to wait for the outcome the court prosecutions instead of disparaging Commission's reputation through whipping public contempt and ridicule,” he said.

The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) Tuesday called for the sacking of Hassan and other IEBC officials over the graft allegations.
