Issack Hassan ready for 2017 polls

21 July 2016, 11:08 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman, Issack Hassan says he is focused on conducting 2017 polls after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) cleared him over bribery allegations in the Chickengate scandal.

Speaking in an interview in Nairobi, Hassan said the clearance by EACC and Parliament’s Justice and Legal Affairs Committee’s (JLAC) decision to throw a petition that wanted his entire team thrown out of office was a great sigh of relief.

“This is a matter that has been hanging over our heads for some time and had almost distracted our attention from the core mandate of the commission. I am happy we have come out clean and we are now rearing to go,” Hassan said.

Hassan said he had nothing to do with the Chickengate scandal and was happy that investigations had vindicated him.

“I have always maintained my innocence and I am happy this has been proved,” Hassan said.

EACC recommended criminal charges against former IEBC CEO James Oswago, Kenneth Karani Hamida Ali Kibwana, and Trevy Oyombra.

The Chickengate scandal involved several officials at the defunct Interim Independent Electoral Commission who allegedly received bribes amounting to KES 52 million from a British firm, Smith and Ouzman.
