Village Elder
High Court has cleared Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Wafula Chebukati and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Ezra Chiloba to conduct October 26 repeat election. The court has noted that the two were not found culpable by Supreme Court. The suit seeking to bar Chebukati and Chiloba from conducting the repeat poll was filed by three voters, Brian Asin, Ben Wanasakaami and Kevino Alwanga.

The three had filed a case at the High Court under certificate of urgency, seeking to bar the commission from conducting the poll, with the Chairman Wafula Chebukati being the first respondent among nine others. All the six commissioners, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Attorney General Githu Muigai ware also included in the suit.

The petitioners had argued that the commissioners and CEO Ezra Chiloba are public officers at IEBC, therefore, should have delivered credible polls as they raise integrity questions. They wanted the court to issue a conservatory order against Chebukati and Chiloba restraining them from supervising presidential elections.
