What you need to know:

  • The revelations come in the midst of a damaging slugfest between Mr Chebukati and the chief executive officer, Mr Ezra Chiloba, whom the chairman sent home last week, after six failed attempts.
  • It appears that both sides are now leaking each other’s business deals to the media.

  • Tabitha Mutemi, a communications manager at the commission, told the Nation that the law firm had been prequalified to offer legal services in the 2015/16 financial year.

Electoral commission chairman Wafula Chebukati has been linked to a tender for legal services which suggests the appearance of conflict of interest in a position which demands the highest integrity.
