Audacious former Commissioner of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), Dr. Roselyne Akombe, has dropped another bomb hours after resigning from the commission with barely 8 days to the repeat Presidential elections.
Speaking during an interview from New York, Akombe accused the Jubilee Government under the leadership of President Uhuru Kenyatta of intimidation and threats to the IEBC commissioners ahead of repeat polls.
Akombe noted that since President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory on August 8th was nullified by the Supreme Court over irregularities and illegalities, Jubilee has never had peace and it was targeting individual commissioners to silence them from speaking the truth about what happened during the last polls that led to annulment of the election.
Citing the incident in August where she was detained at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and barred from travelling to the US until she gets clearance from State House, Akombe revealed that Jubilee feared that she could expose them out there with damaging information about the bungled August 8th polls.
“The Government thought I had damaging information about the bungled polls and that I could expose them, that’s why I was barred from traveling in August.”
“They were scared,” Akombe said.
