The IEBC  hired  Marjan Hussein Marjan  as a new deputy CEO even as Mr Wilson Shollei continues to draw a salary for the same position following his reinstatement by court in 2014.

Shollei was among five senior officials fired in August 2014 over irregularities in the purchase of voter identification services during the 2013 general elections.

Shollei was handed a lifeline after the Industrial Court in December handed him back his job for wrongful dismissal.
