IEBC Commissioner, Dr Akombe Roselyn  has denied fleeing claims leveled against her on social media.

The senior commissioner was reportedly arrested at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) trying to leave the country on Tuesday night without clearance from the Head of Civil Service, Joseph Kinyua.


Dr Akombe has however said that she was at no point trying to run away from the questions being raised on the credibility of the just concluded electoral process.
