IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba has announced that he has been fired by the commission's chairman Mr. Wafula Chebukati.
"I received the employment termination letter signed by the chairman about an hour ago.
The letter claims that I had twice been invited to appear before the disciplinary committee of the commission, but failed to show up, hence the decision to terminate my employment," the CEO said in a tweet.
Mr Ezra was earlier invited before the disciplinary committee at Anniversary Towers but some two days before the scheduled meeting, he wrote to the Mr. Wafula Chebukati informing him that he would not show up.
In the letter dated 9th, he claimed he was unable to conduct a substantive response to the audit queries raised because he had been denied access to his office and relevant documents.
He further added that it was a waste of time appearing before the commission as it had already decided to fire him.
“…you appear to have already pre-determined the matter following reports that you have referred the matter to EACC and DPP,
and you had already made a decision to dismiss me, but later rescinded it, " he said in the letter.
