I wish to thank Kenyans for giving me the opportunity to serve them. It has been an honour.
It was undoubtedly a challenging assignment, but i served my country to the best of my ability and in accordance with the oath of office I took.
I leave IEBC with solid governance structures and a stable permanent secretariat.
To the IEBC staff, thank you for working tirelessly and with dedication despite difficult circumstances at times. You are true heroes.
To the future commission, fidelity to the law is the key to success at IEBC. God bless IEBC. God bless Kenya.
