IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba has been suspended. According to media reports, Chiloba was sent home due to procurement issues. However, the specifics of the procurement issues are yet to be given. On the other hand, the IEBC chairman Chebukati has previously raised questions on a number of technology-related procurements.
The move is likely to disrupt work in the commission. This is owing to the marking out of boundaries for the next election. Chebukati and Chiloba have not had a cordial working relationship since the CEO resumed work this year.
The decision to send Chiloba packing was made last week. Attempts to serve him with the suspension letter on Friday failed because the CEO had left his office before the letter was delivered.
