Chebukati hands over exit report to President Ruto as he leaves office

Outgoing chairman of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has handed over his exit report to president William Ruto as his tenure officially ends.

The handover ceremony was held at State House on Tuesday, alongside other 15 commissions that were similarly handing over their exit reports.

Mr. Chebukati handed over the report on behalf of the entire electoral body, together with a post-election evaluation report which was launched on Monday.

Shortly after, he took the lectern where he reiterated that he is content with how he ran the August 2022 election and that they have laid the ground for the oncoming team upon which they will conduct the next elections.

"What we have here is our exit report together with our post-election evaluation report making the end of the last phase of the election cycle and the beginning of the new one to 2027," he said.

He further expressed optimism that the commission will remain steadfast under CEO Hussein Marjan's leadership and the incoming team of commissioners.

"We ran a free fair credible and transparent election in 2022. We have put in place structures that the new team should build on, we have standard operating procedures and manuals. We have a strong secretariat led by our CEO Marjan," he said.

Also present in the ceremony were Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi, Attorney General Justin Muturi, National Assembly speaker Moses Wetangula and Senate Speaker Amason Kingi.

Chebukati exits alongside commissioners Abdi Guliye and Boya Molu. A term in the commission runs for 6 years.
