IEBC sends procurement Director, Lawy Aura packing , over incompetence

BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,6TH JUNE,2017-The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has fired  the  Procurement Director, Mr. Lawy Aura, over what it termed as  incompetence and delayed ballot papers sourcing process.The announcement  was made Tuesday through the commission’s official twitter handle.

The electoral body  has  alleged  that  Aura is the sole reason behind the delayed sourcing of ballot papers to be used during the August 8 General Election.

The ballot papers procurement has been a centre of contention with many court cases being filed amid uncertainty over which company should be awarded the tender.

The sacking of the procurement officer comes barely two weeks after the Wafula Chebukati-led commission suspended its ICT Director, James Muhati, after concerns over the reliability of the electronic system that the commission intends to us in conducting the August polls.James Muhati  was accused of refusing to cooperate in an ongoing audit of ICT systems.
