Every IT guy out there knows that an IT system is only as secure as the individual managing it. An IT manager, and a senior one in that case, has escalated privileges and access to the system they manage. They can create records, edit records and even create users and even backdoors to the system. The news by IEBC that one of their senior IT managers is missing therefore means that the whole electoral management system might be compromised. That cannot be ruled out.
But again, Kenyans, being Kenyans, will receive the news tomorrow or any other day that the guy was found drinking with his friends and that everything is under control. And we will go back to our usual comfort zones, while Jubilee prepare to dance and make merry on compromised electoral processes!
If the missing person dies because of his jobs, it will prove that some job by their nature are very risky. The top IEBC jobs seem to end in disgrace. And Chebukati and Chiloba know too well should they fail to honour the wishes of Kenyans, they will end up so disgraced as their predecessors.
IEBC has been going from one shit-storm, to the next. There is something fishy about Chebukati, he can’t look anyone in the eye. The whole institution stinks and bereft of any credibility given their resistance to give Kenyans a credible election.
We have been watching every step, pronouncement, body language and move of IEBC, they are not ready to give Kenya a credible election.
As we wait and hope, however forlornly, that Musando is somewhere alive, the IEBC bosses should know that ukiona mwenzako akinyolewa, anza kutia maji.
