Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba has watered down claims that he is related to President Uhuru Kenyatta and the First Family.
There were rumors being circulated that Chiloba is married in the Kenyatta family, speculation he termed untrue.
“Well, as much as it might be flattering it’s not true. I have no relations with the Kenyattas. You know when I was appointed, they said I was appointed because of Jomo Gecaga, a guy I’ve never met in my life,” he said.
“When the ballot paper thing came up, they said oh, it was Chiloba and Muhoho who fixed this stuff. Never met these guys in my life! Never met the president one-on-one.”
“I saw pictures the other day of me and a lady in a wedding line-up who is supposedly my wife. That’s not my wife. I was in a wedding two years ago as the best man and the lady - an MP’s wife, was the best maid.”
The woman in the picture is reportedly related to the Kenyattas.
