Court refuses to reinstate IEBC boss Ezra Chiloba

HIGH COURT declines to give orders reinstating IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba

Ezra Chiloba has lost a bid to temporarily lift his suspension from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.

Judge Stephen Radio on Friday declined to grant the CEO’s request, saying he needed to hear all parties and facts of the case first.

The Employment and Labour relations court judge pointed out that the case reveals a complex splash between employer and common law.

Chiloba who was the chief executive officer of IEBC was sent on compulsory leave as a result of a protracted battle involving five tenders for last year’s General Election.

In a suit filed by at the Employment and Labour Relations Court on Thursday challenging the decision, Chiloba pointed an accusing finger at IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati for allegedly orchestrating his removal.

Although he has sued Mr Chebukati, IEBC Vice-Chairperson Consolata Maina and commissioners Abdi Guliye, Boya Mulu, Margaret Mwachanya, Paul Kurgat and the commission, Mr Chiloba through his lawyer Andrew Wandabwa, argues that it all boils down to his differences with Mr Chebukati.
