Former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba is on the receiving end of a section of Kenyans wrath after Roselyn Akombe accused him of threatening her regarding recent claims on Chris Msando murder.

In a screenshot of an email that the former IEBC commissioner claimed Chiloba sent her, the former CEO said, “Do not attempt to rewrite history, our silence is not your license.”

Akombe has vowed to spill the beans.

“I received this email from Ezra Chiloba, former CEO IEBC. It confirms my call for an inquiry. Kenyans deserve the truth. I owe it to you,” she captioned the email screenshot.

While marking the third anniversary since Msando was found brutally murdered, Akombe stated that she was ready to testify in an inquiry into the former IEBC ICT boss’ murder.

In a tweet dated July 29, Akombe said that Msando was led “to the slaughterhouse” by commission insiders.

She called on the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) President Nelson Havi to take up the matter due to public interest.

“On this anniversary of my colleague Msando’s murder, could you take this case up in the public’s interest? As I have said in the past, I am ready to testify,” she wrote on Twitter.

Msando had promised he would ensure the IEBC tech system in the 2017 elections was foolproof. President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory was later nullified by the Supreme Court citing irregularities in the process. He won, however, in a repeat election.

It’s alleged that Msando was killed to create room for selfish leaders to bungle the elections.

Following the tension that ensued after the elections, Akombe fled the country for the United States (US) and submitted her resignation.

She claimed that the institution was filled with massive corruption that would hinder the delivery of credible repeat elections.
