IEBC commissioners might go home with no packages at all, says MP

28 September 2016, 12:32

Nairobi - Embattled IEBC commissioners might go home with nothing come the September 30th deadline that has been set for them to vacate office, Makueni MP Dan Maanzo has said.

Maanzo has said that the commissioners must vacate office on or before 30th as agreed and wait for Treasury and Salaries and Remuneration Commission to decide on their packages while away.

"The commissioners should not stay in office arguing that they have not been paid their packages. They must go home by September 30th and wait for their packages there. They should remember that they are asking to be paid even what they have not worked for," said Maanzo on local TV Tuesday.

He added: "They can even end up with nothing if Sarah Serem's SRC find them to have misbehaved while in office."

However, Juja MP Francis Waititu differed with Maanzo saying that the date of the exit of the commissioners was a 'gentleman agreement' and is not in the amended IEBC law that President Uhuru Kenyatta signed.

"We cannot force the commissioners to leave office by September 30th because their send-off package has not been agreed yet.

This is an independent body and can go to court and challenge their forced removal from office.

It was a gentleman agreement that they leave by 30th and is not in the law," Waititu said.

Cord has threatened to go back to the streets if the IEBC commissioners don't leave office by September 30th.
