The Public Accounts Committee is heading for a three-day retreat starting today to write a report on its investigations into Iebc operations during the 2017 general elections.
Economy Treasury rejects Sh3.9bn Iebc bills The Treasury has rejected a request of Sh3.9 billion that the electoral agency has put forward for pending bills arising from the last General Election, mostly claims by lawyers.
Mr Waibara argues that Jubilee Party and the Iebc shouldn’t have cleared Ms Kibe to run since she was still serving as a nominated MCA, “a grave violation of the Constitution.” The petitioner, who served as the area MP between 2007 and 2012, has anchored his petition on Article 99 of the Constitution which highlights grounds for qualifications and disqualifications for election as MP.

Evidence tabled during the trial in London named former Iebc chair Issack Hassan, former Energy Minister Davis Chirchir, Uasin Gishu Woman Rep Gladys Shollei, lawyer Kennedy Nyaundi, Kenneth Karani and former elections commissioner Joseph Dena among those who participated in the scam.
