Two Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission commissioners who resigned and made a comeback last week owe the institution close to Sh2 million in unsupported expenditures they incurred, an internal audit showed.
Former vice-chairperson Ms Consolata Maina, the audit found, was paid Sh1.9 million as relocation allowance from Australia where she was previously based before her appointment as a commissioner.
The audit, however, notes that the payment was not supported by requisite documents including air ticket and relevant receipts showing payments made to the logistics company responsible from transportation and clearing of her baggage.
“Instead, an unidentifiable document dated July 12, 2017 obtained from Qubeba Cargo Ltd indicating cost estimates was used to support the payment,” the audit noted.
Payment of the relocation allowance for Dr Roselyn Akombe, who also resigned, was stopped on October 18, 2017 immediately she resigned.
