 The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has advertised to invite applicants the position of the Chief Executive Officer barely eight months to the next year’s polls.

The top position fell vacant after its previous holder Mr. Ezra Chiloba was sacked in 2018.  This was highly associated to a bad blood between him and the Commissioners over the 2017 general elections.  

Details of the recruitment of the electoral agency’s Secretary is contained in an advert released by the Commission on Friday. The advert has also sought to employ the deputy CEO of the Commission.

The CEO is the Accounting Officer of the Commission and is answerable to the Commission which is currently headed by Chairman Wafula Chebukati.  

The successful candidates for the two positions will serve for a 5-year non-renewable term. 

The advert read in part: “A key part of the responsibilities for this office is to ensure prudent management of the Commission’s resources, integrity and professional performance of all her functions.”

According to the advert, potential candidates must be Kenyans, holders of a degree from a recognized university with at least five years proven experience at management level. This however must be coupled with experience in management of electoral matters, management, governance, public administration, law, finance or political science.

Mr. Chiloba who was recently appointed the Director General of the Communications Authority of Kenya was forced to go on leave before the October 26, 2017. He would later be sacked in 2018. Mr Marjan Hassan Marjan has been acting as the CEO ever since.
