Kenya election board commissioners resign

Ballot Box Kenya Kenya's election was cancelled after people had voted

Three commissioners from Kenya's election board have resigned, saying the the body is dysfunctional and its chairman,Wafula Chebukati, is incompetent.

"The institution has continued to be dysfunctional, with arbitrary decision-making, leaking of internal documents... and pursuing of personal interests," the three said in a statement.

Vice-chairwoman Consolata Nkatha is among those who resigned.
