Former IEBC Commissioner secures senior position at UN

Former IEBC Commissioner Roselyn Akombe has been promoted to a senior position at the United Nations (UN).

Akombe, who fled the country after reporting irregularities in the vote tallying proces during last year’s General Election, has been promoted to Chief of Policy Planning and Guidance at the United Nations.

This comes against the backdrop of allegations that Kenya was lobbying for her dismissal. Salim Lone, a former director of News and Media Division at UN, said Akombe will serve at the United Nation’s Department of Political Affairs.
