  • The commission emerged third in the Public Procurement Project of the Year category in the Kenya Institute of Supply Management Awards held on Friday.
  • The honour comes amid a battle between four of the seven election body’s commissioners and the President William Ruto.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has been awarded for its “excellent” management of procurement processes in the last year.

In the Kenya Institute of Supply Management Awards held on Friday, the commission emerged third in the Public Procurement Project of the Year category.

The Commission was yesterday feted for its excellent management of procurement processes in the last year,” IEBC said in a tweet.

The event was held at the Carnivore Grounds and was graced by the Chief of Staff and Head of Public Service Hon. Felix Koskei.

The Kenya Institute of Supply Management Award gala dinner recognizes individuals and organizations with best practices in Supply Chain Management.

The honour comes amid a battle between four of the seven election body’s commissioners and the President William Ruto.

Ruto on Friday suspended Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera as well as fellow Commissioners Irene Masit, Justus Nyang'aya and Francis Wanderi, and formed a tribunal to consider a petition seeking their removal from office.

In a Gazette notice, the president said the decision came following a recommendation by the National Assembly that sought to oust the commissioners over their conduct during the August 9 General Election.

The four had disowned the presidential election results.

Nyang’anya resigned just hours after the suspension.

With the removal of the four, the country risks being without an electoral commission as the term of the other three commissioners, Chairperson Wafula Chebukati, Abdi Guliye, and Boya Molu is ending on January 18, 2023.
