Tension continues to rise at the IEBC as the leadership grapples with sharp divisions that threaten to ground its operations.
Deep divisions within the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) put the repeat election in jeopardy, with decision-making having almost collapsed as commissioners either oppose or contradict each other in public.
The commission has not held meetings, as the tension between the two officials have also split the commission, with Mr Chebukati getting the support of only two commissioners out of six.
