Friday, July 22, 2022 – Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman, Wafula Chebukati, has said his employees are living in fear due to threats they have been receiving from unknown people.

Speaking on Friday, Chebukati, who first protested the arrest of three IEBC contractors at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport(JKIA) on Thursday, said many employees have been receiving numerous threats from numbers that can only be traced by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

Chebukati said IEBC employees working at the ICT docket are not sleeping in their homes for fear they might be killed like former IEBC ICT manager Chris Musando, who was killed one week before the 2017 presidential election.

“Our staff, especially in the ICT are now frightened because their photos are now all over the media. Do not forget it was around this time on July 28 five years ago when our ICT staff was murdered,” Chebukati said.

On the arrest of three contractors, Chebukati said they were released after police realised they were Smartmatic International B.V employees, a company in charge of establishing and maintaining the electronic voting infrastructure during the August 9th poll.

  1. Chebukati you’re well educated why don’t you make sure that your fellow IEBC employees working at ICT are well protected with there families at all means possible I mean your the head of IEBC stop being selfish and insane request protection for those fellows they are innocent doing there jobs like any other tax payers citizen,this time round let it not happen the way musando was killed the people who killed musando are cowards the government has all the answers who killed him,it’s the same chronicles of the Kenyan genocide for selfish Kenyan leaders interests who take it for fun and there own glory,I know there’s a proverb which that says ‘To err is human,’ but a human error is nothing to what a computer can do if it tries,God creates us free, free to be selfish, but He adds a mechanism that will penetrate our selfishness and wake us up to the presence of others in this world, and that mechanism is called suffering,So Chebukati be wise and make sure those ICT fellows are protected at any cost possible we all pay taxes no one is second class citizen.
