BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,23RD APRIL 2018-The electoral commission has  dismissed claims that its chairman Wafula Chebukati had agreed to step down as “fake”.

According to  the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) manager in charge of communications and corporate affairs Tabitha Mutemi, the letter dated April 23 and bearing the commission’s logo is not authentic and did not originate from the electoral body.

Ms Mutemi said the notice was shared on Twitter by several unverified accounts.

This comes just days after  Mr Chebukati vowed to stay put after three commissioners resigned from the electoral agency. He said the commission as currently constituted is rightfully in place.
