The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) says no official at the secretariat has been dismissed.

A leaked internal memo had indicated on Tuesday that IEBC’s Chair Wafula Chebukati had suspended James Muhati (ICT Director), Paul Mugo (ICT Coordinator) and Boniface Wamae (ICT Officer) for not helping the commission deliver a free, fair and credible August election.

“Quite patently, the ICT Director and two members of staff involved in managing SFTP platform, appear to have fallen short of assisting the Commission successfully discharge this collegial and constitutionally enshrined mandate,” IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati’s leaked internal memo read in part.

However through its Twitter page, IEBC stated that the contents in the internal memo were yet to be approved since the matter was still under deliberation.
