The vacancies came after the resignation of commissioners Paul Kurgat, Margaret Mwachanya and Connie Maina on April 16, 2018 citing a lack of confidence in the leadership of chairperson Wafula Chebukati.
“For far too long and way too many times, the commission chair has failed to be the steady and stable hand that steers the ship in difficult times and gives direction when needed.
“Instead under Chebukati’s leadership, the commission boardroom has become a venue for peddling misinformation, grounds for brewing mistrust and a space for scrambling and chasing individual glory and credit,” they said in a joint statement.
