Kenya: Chebukati Finds Humor in Chiloba's Troubles With Locked Office

Electoral Commission chairman Wafula Chebukati has responded with humour to claims that he traveled abroad with keys to chief executive Ezra Chiloba's office.

Mr Chiloba reported to work on Wednesday after being reinstated by the Employment and Labour Relations Court, but could not access his office whose door locks had been changed.

The chief executive was reportedly informed that Mr Chebukati had travelled abroad with the keys.

IEBC quickly posted a tweet to clarify that it was just a coincidence that Mr Chebukati was on a trip abroad when the keys went missing.

It's just some coincidence that @wchebukati was away. He is the Chairman, he does not carry any office keys. He is not the janitor.

Soon after, Mr Chebukati fired out his own tweet that took humorous angle on the missing keys saga.

Was going to joke that my wife has them in her handbag but this is the correct position. https://t.co/92TCCUzHf7

The tweet rubbed some people the wrong way, while others thought it was funny.

Mr Omoro thought it was funny saying; "Haha kumbe the Chairman also has some sense of humour. Chi loba mass go."

Ms Linda Mbaisi corrected his English; "Mr Wafula, start that sentence with "I". Simple English."

"Then who is locking him out... it's not a JOKE anymore... Or the whole commission should be disbanded... !!!" Eric Wrights wondered.

Ticha Pii simply told him; "Keep joking... They are coming for you next... . The game has just began... "

Mumbe Abuom advised him to join a comedy show; "My brother join Churchill every Sunday at Carnivore. We will forget about IEBC's evils."
