Security details of IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati and Commissioners Boya Molu and Abdi Guliye withdrawn.

The government's decision to take away Chebukati's security came amid increasing calls for the Chair and the two remaining commissioners to leave office.

The three cited lack of faith and confidence in the Commission's Chair as the reason for their resignation.

Three commissioners from Kenya's election board resigned on Monday, citing failure of the board's leadership and dysfunction in the organisation.

In a written statement, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) said it is seeking for understanding of the circumstances leading to withdrawal of security guards (including armed drivers) attached to the agency's chairman Wafula Chebukati and commissioners Ayub Guliya and Boya Molu.

The commission said the move was exposing the trio to a security risk insisting that provision of security was an entitlement under their contracts.

"The Commission Chairperson has failed to be the steady and stable hand that steers the ship in hard times and give direction when needed", they said in a joint statement.

In October past year, commissioner Roselyn Akombe resigned from the IEBC saying she had received death threats. It was first captured by the State to rig the presidential election past year and then the commissioners and senior staff became greedy players in the procurement process and the business undertaken by the commission.

In an interesting turn of events, vocal commissioner Roselyne Akombe threw in the towel seven days to the repeat October 26 polls.

The three also questioned the manner in which Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba was sent on a three-month compulsory leave. Kenya's opposition claimed some commissioners in Kenya's six-member electoral authority were complicit in electoral fraud in the August 8 election in which Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the victor but was then nullified by the Supreme Court.
