- He was ordered to explain why he suspended CEO Ezra Chiloba after the court reinstated him

- The court has given Chebukati 30 days to explain or face a jail term of not less than six months

- Chiloba went to court to challenge his suspension

- Chebukati had suspended him on grounds of paving way for a financial audit

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati has 30 days to explain why he disobeyed a court order reinstating suspended CEO Ezra Chiloba or be jailed for six months.

The Employment and Labour Relations Court in Nairobi on Wednesday, July 12, issued summons to Chebukati and two other commissioners requiring them to give reasons why the suspended Chiloba for the second time.

A report by The Standard on Thursday, July 12, seen by TUKO.co.ke,stated the court ordered Chebukati to appear in person to explain why he should not be jailed for contempt.

On Thursday, June 14, for the second time just a few hours after the court had reinstated him.

Chiloba had successfully filed an application challenging a three months' suspension by Chebukati.

TUKO.co.ke understands Chebukati had sent Chiloba home citing he would interfere with an audit exercise initiated to investigate illegal financial transactions and loss ofabout KSh 1 billion at the commission.

Chiloba who had challenged his three months' compulsory leave won the case on grounds that the suspension pending an audit on the commission did not have contractual obligation.

Chebukati argued Chiloba was a financial officer at the commission virtue of being the CEO and was directly involved in approval of expenditure.

He wanted Chiloba out of the commission's offices until the financial audit was complete.

There has been an incessant push and pull between Chiloba and Chebukati since the Tuesday, August 8, 2017 General Election with both blaming each other for anomalies in the commission.
