Dr. Roselyn Akombe downplays the assertion that Ezra Chiloba was appointed an ambassador; consul general in the US to trace her.

Former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioner Roselyn Akombe says she is not troubled by Ezra Chiloba’s appointment as an ambassador.

Via a statement by State House Chief of Staff Felix Koskei on Friday, March 8, President William Ruto appointed Chiloba as consul general in the United States.

He would be in charge of the state of Los Angeles.

Reacting to the appointment, a Kenyan suggested that it was strategic in tracing Akombe, who fell out with the Kenyan state in 2017.

“Chiloba has been sent to look for Akombe. She should now be watchful and careful. Chiloba is hunting her down. She better move to Switzerland,” said the concerned Kenyan named Mapangala.

In her reaction, Akombe said she is not in fear of anything, entrusting her safety with her God.

Ezra Chiloba once served as the IEBC chief executive officer at the sametime Dr. Akombe was a commissioner.

Akombe fled Kenya at a critical time ahead of the 2017 repeat elections following the annulment of the presidential results by the Supreme Court.

She resigned from her post citing intimidation and lack of transparency in the country’s electoral system.

Akombe had also promised to testify in the public inquest into the brutal murder of former IEBC ICT director Chris Musando.

Since then, she shunned Kenya until 2021 when she first returned.

Roselyn Akombe had earlier said Chris Msando, the commission’s slain ICT manager, was led “to the slaughterhouse” by commission insiders.

Akombe, in a series of tweets, put the IEBC on the spot, saying Msando’s colleagues sold him out to his killers adding that she was ready to tell what she knows.

“…Painful that instead on this day three years ago, your own colleagues led you to the slaughterhouse. Like Judas, they sold you for thirty cents, “Akombe tweeted.

“We will find justice for you, no matter how long it takes,” the former commissioner said.
