- The report was apparently intend to guide the Auditor General in heaping blame on Chiloba

- The infighting at IEBC has all three remaining commissioners hell-bent at fixing the suspended Chiloba

`- The internal audit report is set for release in July, according to a statement from the commission

- Ex-IEBC commissioner Thomas Letangula has termed suspension of Chiloba as illegal since the commission lacks quorum

Kenya National Audit Office (KENAO) has distanced itself from an internal report commissioned by IEBC chairman targeting suspended CEO Ezra Chiloba, TUKO.co.ke has learnt.

Disgruntled staff lament the goings on at IEBC say Chebukati and three remaining commissioners had hoped the report would guide the Auditor General in heaping blame on Chiloba but were disappointed when KENAO insisted on carryout an independent audit.

TUKO.co.ke understands the CEO (Chiloba) does not have a vote at the plenary meetings. He is the secretary; his main job is to present all situations to the commissioners who vote on the policy decisions.”

According to the internal auditors, the report which has been conjured up internally under the careful oversight of commissioners Wafula Chebukati, Boya Molu and Abdi Ghuliye, is aimed at heaping all of the commission's misgivings on CEO Ezra Chiloba as the trio quietly negotiate their exit package.

A statement issued by the commission’s chairman on Monday, June 18, said the preliminary results of the said report were out and the final one would will be released in July but it remains to be seen if there will be conflicting findings from the independent audit carried out by KENAO. .

After he was sent on leave, Chiloba revealed in his affidavits that the commissioners had overstepped their roles as non-executives, assuming critical roles including influencing procurement of some of the key items.

It is this revelations that caused Chebukati to take a decision to send Chiloba’s staff on leave fearing that they would be in a position to share with the CEO all the plenary minutes which would reveal the commissioners voting positions throughout their tenure.

Chebukati has condemned Chiloba for taking IEBC to court and revealing the contents of some of the decisions the commissioners voted on.

In a memo he sent Thursday, June 14, when further suspending Chiloba who had just been reinstated by the courts, Chebukati said the CEO had gone against his contract by suing the commission.

“Lastly, the commission notes with concern that you have acted in outright violation of Clause 14(c) and 15 of your Employment Contract which prohibits you from suing the Commission while in employment and disclosing the official/classified information, concerns, affairs, facts or accounts of the commission…” the memo reads.

Former IEBC commissioner Thomas Letangule said the decision to suspend Chiloba requires the full commission saying following resignation of three commissioners on April 16, the management lacks legal quorum.
